Courtship Quotations

This is courtship all the world over - the man all tongue; the woman all ears.
Emily Murphy

I'm wide open to getting married, but actors are not easy people to date. You end up sharing that person with this other mistress that is their career. I very much like the traditional courtship method of making a date. That's what they do in normal places, but Hollywood's not normal.
Seth MacFarlane

Courtship is to marriage, as a very witty prologue to a very dull play.
William Congreve

At 14 I discovered girls. At that time dancing was the only way you could put your arm around the girl. Dancing was courtship.
Gene Kelly

While I am aware of no counsel on whether kissing should be reserved only for post-mission dating or courtship, I am aware of plenty of counsel concerning honesty in our actions and treating others with respect and kindness. Casual attitudes about expressions of affection such as kissing can cause much grief and heartache.
John Bytheway
