Favorite Cupid Quotes

1. "Three days a week she helped at the Manor Nursing Home, where people proved their keenness by reciting received analyses of current events. All the Manor residents watched television day and night, informed to the eyeballs like everyone else and rushed for time, toward what end no one asked. Their cupidity and self-love were no worse than anyone else's, but their many experiences' having taught them so little irked Lou. One hated tourists, another southerners; another despised immigrants. Even dying, they still held themselves in highest regard. Lou would have to watch herself. For this way of thinking began to look like human nature--as if each person of two or three billion would spend his last vital drop to sustain his self-importance."
Author: Annie Dillard
2. "Omg this is like one of those sappy romance movies but I don't care! Jake is holding my hand! I looked back up at him and we slowly rose staring into each other's eyes. Ok, where the heck is my awesome music saying he's the one?! What about a breeze that blows my hair in all directions making me look hot? C'mon Cupid! Give me something!!! A weak chilly breeze blew. It barely even moved my hair. Oh c'mon!!!!"
Author: Bella Shadow
3. "It's the silliness--the profligacy, and the silliness--that's so dizzying: a seven-year-old will run downstairs, kiss you hard, and then run back upstairs again, all in less than 30 seconds. It's as urgent an item on their daily agenda as eating or singing. It's like being mugged by Cupid."
Author: Caitlin Moran
4. "Me alegro, porque es posible, y subrayo posible, que ese momento no llegue nunca, que no te enamores, que no quieras ni puedas entregarle la vida a nadie y que, como yo, cumplas un día los cuarenta y cinco años y te des cuenta de que ya no eres joven y que no había para ti un coro de cupidos con liras ni un lecho de rosas blancas tendido hacia el altar, y la única vergüenza que te quede sea robarle a la vida el placer de esa carne firme y ardiente que se evapora más rápido que las buenas intenciones, y que es lo más parecido al cielo que encontrarás en este cochino mundo donde se pudre todo, empezando por la belleza y acabando por la memoria."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
5. "FERMÍN CAME TO WORK BORNE ON the wings of Cupid, smiling and whistling boleros. In any other"
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
6. "It's possible, and I stress possible, that such a moment may never come: you may not fall in love, you may not be able to or you may not wish to give your whole life to anyone, and, like me, you may turn forty-five one day and realize that you're no longer young and you have never found a choir of cupids with lyres or a bed of white roses leading to the altar. The only revenge left for you then will be to steal from life the pleasure of firm and passionate flesh - a pleasure that evaporates faster than good intentions and is the nearest thing to heaven you will find in this stinking world where everything decays, beginning with beauty and ending with memory."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
7. "I held a brief debate with myself as to whether I should change my ordinary attire for something smarter. At last I concluded it would be a waste of labour. "Doubtless," though I, "she is some stiff old maid ; for though the daughter of Madame Reuter, she may well number upwards of forty winters; besides, if it were otherwise, if she be both young and pretty, I am not handsome, and no dressing can make me so, therefore I'll go as I am." And off I started, cursorily glancing sideways as I passed the toilet-table, surmounted by a looking-glass: a thin irregular face I saw, with sunk, dark eyes under a large, square forehead, complexion destitute of bloom or attraction; something young, but not youthful, no object to win a lady's love, no butt for the shafts of Cupid."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
8. "The Holy Mother has many faces, but you know it's her from her blue cloak. She is said to be the spirit in all women." "Look, here she is naked and the baby Jesus has wings, " said Lucien."That is not the Holy Mother, that's Venus and that's not Jesus, that is Cupid, the Roman god of love.""Wouldn't she have the spirit of the Holy Mother as well?""No, she is a pagan myth.""What about Maman? Is the spirit of the Holy Mother in her?""No, Lucien, your mother is also a pagan myth. Come, look at these paintings of wrestlers."
Author: Christopher Moore
9. "Hurts to see you everydayCupid shuts his eyes and shot me twiceSmell your perfume on my bedThoughts of you invade my headTruths are written, never saidAnd if I can't be yours nowI'll wait here on this groundTill you come, till you take me awayMaybe somedayMaybe someday"
Author: Colleen Hoover
10. "Una de las cosas que me gusta de los libros es que son capaces de definir y condensar ciertas porciones de la vida de un personaje en capítulos. Es interesante, porque no se puede hacer eso en la vida real. No se puede terminar un capítulo y entonces saltar las cosas que no quieres vivir, sólo para abrir otro capítulo que se adapte mejor a tu estado de ánimo. La vida no puede dividirse en capítulos... solamente minutos. Los acontecimientos de tu vida están ligados a un minuto después de otro sin ningún tipo de lapso de tiempo o páginas en blanco o saltos de capítulos, porque no importa lo que pase, la vida sigue adelante y las palabras siguen fluyendo y las verdades son escupidas te guste o no, y nunca la vida te permitirá hacer una pausa y recuperar el jodido aliento."
Author: Colleen Hoover

There was never anything that gave me as much satisfaction as to be in something amusing."
Author: Eve Golden
14. "Old boy," said Grimes, "you're in love.""Nonsense!""Smitten?" said Grimes."No, no.""The tender passion?""No.""Cupid's jolly little darts?""No.""Spring fancies, love's young dream?""Nonsense!""Not even a quickening of the pulse?""No.""A sweet despair?""Certainly not.""A trembling hope?""No.""A frisson? a Je ne sais quoi?""Nothing of the sort.""Liar!" said Grimes."
Author: Evelyn Waugh
15. "She was about twenty-four, Rosemary guessed - her face could have been described in terms of conventional prettiness, but the effect was that it had been made first on the heroic scale with strong structure and marking, as if the features and vividness of brow and coloring, everything we associate with temperament and character had been molded with a Rodinesque intention, and then chiseled away in the direction of prettiness to a point where a single slip would have irreparably diminished its force and quality. With the mouth the sculptor had taken desperate chances - it was the cupid's bow of a magazine cover, yet it shared the distinction of the rest."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
16. "I'll tell you what love is. Love is walking up and down Archer Road in Gainesville, Florida and feeling like Cupid. Too bad the cops took issue with me hitch hiking with a bow and arrow."

Author: Jarod Kintz
20. "I pictured Cupid sitting in a crappy little bar, drunk and depressed, while he moaned to the bartender, "That Jasmine Parks, gods, she pisses me off! Did you see what she just did? Totally blew off this immortal stud to play kiss-the-boo-boo with a fickle little rent-a-cop. Why? 'Cause she's the biggest chickenshit on the planet! I'm ready to toss my bow and pick up a bazooka!"
Author: Jennifer Rardin
21. "Que se muera el olvido,que se escondan las llaves de los juzgados,que se acuerde Cupido de los maridosabandonados.Cuando llegue por fin mi mensajea tus manos, en la gasolineravieja esperaré;y tomaremos juntos al abordajela carreteraque te conté."
Author: Joaquín Sabina
22. "La mia idea era di lasciare che la squadra di incatenati scomparisse alla vista prima di salire la collina. Sapete che non sono tenero in modo particolare; ho dovuto colpire e parare colpi. Ho dovuto difendermi e talvolta attaccare - il modo migliore per difendersi - senza calcolarne il costo esatto, secondo le necessità del genere di vita in cui ero incappato. Ho visto il demone della violenza, il demone della cupidigia, e il demone della bramosia bruciante; ma, per gli dèi!, erano demoni forti, vigorosi, dagli occhi ardenti, che scuotevano e trascinavano uomini - uomini, dico. Ma mentre ero su quella collina, previdi che nel sole accecante di quella terra avrei conosciuto un demone floscio, pretenzioso, dagli occhi smorti, di una follia rapace e spietata. Quanto insidioso potesse essere, dovevo impararlo soltanto dopo parecchi mesi e a mille miglia di distanza."
Author: Joseph Conrad
23. "He simply painted the portrait of some aristocratic Mesalina, and was tactful enough to let Cupid hold the mirror in which she tests her majestic allure with cold satisfaction. He looks as though his task were becoming burdensome enough. The picture is painted flattery. Later an 'expert' in the Rococo period baptized the lady with the name of Venus. The furs of the despot in which Titian's fair model wrapped herself, probably more for fear of a cold than out of modesty, have become a symbol of the tyranny and cruelty that constitute woman's essence and her beauty."
Author: Leopold Von Sacher Masoch
24. "That hallmark image of cupid as a fat cherub with arrows? I think the real cupid is some kind of psycho juvie with a taser."
Author: Lesley Livingston
25. "Women. You'll interpret anything as love. You see a man wearing an idiotic expression, and you assume he's been struck by Cupid's arrow when in reality, he's digesting a bad turnip."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
26. "Kid, time's up," Hunter said to the boy on Santa's lap."I'm not finished!" the boy cried.Hunter bent over, until their faces were level. The kid reminded him of Cupid,whose chubby face hid a diabolical brain intent on replacing Santa as the most beloved holiday figure. Hunter had lost more than one of his platoon members after they were lured into Cupid's boiling pots ofchocolate. He'd learned not to trust kids."If you don't want me to slip you a poison gumdrop in your sleep, get off Santa's lap," Hunter whispered.The boy burst into tears."Next!" Hunter barked."
Author: Lizzy Ford

Author: Rick Riordan
36. "No, the secret is that there's no reward and we have to endure our characters and our natures as best we can, because no amount of experience or insight is going to rectify our deficiencies, our self-regard, or our cupidity. We have to learn that our desires do not find any real echo in the world. We have to accept that the people we love do not love us, or not in the way we hope. We have to accept betrayal and disloyalty, and, hardest of all, that someone is finer than we are in character or intelligence."
Author: Sándor Márai
37. "She is a mortal danger to all men. She is beautiful without knowing it, and possesses charms that she's not even aware of. She is like a trap set by nature - a sweet perfumed rose in whose petals Cupid lurks in ambush! Anyone who has seen her smile has known perfection. She instills grace in every common thing and divinity in every careless gesture. Venus in her shell was never so lovely, and Diana in the forest never so graceful as you."
Author: Savinien Cyrano De Bergerac
38. "Aah, woodpecker! Help!" Cedar shouted. "Woodpecker! Girl made of wood! Not a good combo!" "I'll help you!" Hunter cried. "Here we go," Cupid said, rubbing her hands together. "It's shirt-ripping time." Sure enough, Hunter ripped off his shirt and posed. Invisible horns played a heroic fanfare. Hunter lifted his ax and chased the woodpecker. Which was chasing Cedar. "Aah, ax!" Cedar said, still running. "A woodpecker! And an ax! Aah!"
Author: Shannon Hale
39. "Cupid, you worthless bastard, I summon you to human form! (Julian)Gee, I can't imagine why he wouldn't respond to that. (Grace)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
40. "Battles against Rome have been lost and won before, but hope was never abandoned, since we were always here in reserve. We, the choicest flower of Britain's manhood, were hidden away in her most secret places. Out of sight of subject shores, we kept even our eyes free from the defilement of tyranny. We, the most distant dwellers upon earth, the last of the free, have been shielded till today by our very remoteness and by the obscurity in which it has shrouded our name. Now, the farthest bounds of Britain lie open to our enemies; and what men know nothing about they always assume to be a valuable prize.... A rich enemy excites their cupidity; a poor one, their lust for power. East and West alike have failed to satisfy them. They are the only people on earth to whose covetousness both riches and poverty are equally tempting. To robbery, butchery and rapine, they give the lying name of 'government'; they create a desolation and call it peace..."
Author: Tacitus
41. "…I bet Echo that she couldn't repeat the following line ten times fast: Cupid's Academy counts kissing cousins as completed conquests cause his classes cunningly conspire unconscious couples to copulate and canoodle copiously."
Author: Tai
42. "I wish I was a despot that I might save the noble, the beautiful trees that are daily falling sacrifice to the cupidity of their owners, or the necessity of the poor. The unnecessary felling of a tree, perhaps the growth of centuries, seems to me a crime little short of murder."
Author: Thomas Jefferson
43. "I feel like a lot of people in the hip hop world don't take me seriously as a rapper, and I feel that first-and-foremost I came up as a rapper before I started singing. All a lot of people know from me is 'Cupid's Chokehold,' and they don't scratch the surface and see beyond that dude who sings the song about his girlfriend."
Author: Travie McCoy
44. "V'è uno spettacolo più grande del mare, ed è il cielo;v'è uno spettacolo più grande del cielo, ed è l'interno dell'anima.Far il poema della coscienza umana, foss'anco d'un sol uomo, del più infimo fra gli uomini, sarebbe come fondere tutte le epopee in un'epopea superiore e definitiva. La coscienza è il caos delle chimere, delle cupidigie e dei tentativi, la fornace dei sogni, l'antro delle idee di cui si ha vergogna; è il pandemonio dei sofismi, è il campo di battaglia delle passioni. Penetrate, in certe ore, attraverso la faccia livida d'un uomo che sta riflettendo, guardate in quell'anima, in quell'oscurità; sotto il silenzio esteriore, vi sono combattimenti di giganti come in Omero, mischie di dragoni ed idre e nugoli di fantasmi, come in Milton, visioni ultraterrene come in Dante. Oh, qual abisso è mai quest'infinito che ogni uomo porta in sé e col quale confronta disperatamente la volontà del cervello e gli atti della vita!"
Author: Victor Hugo
45. "I observed with disillusioned clarity the despicable nonentity of the street; its porches; its window curtains; the drab clothes, the cupidity and complacency of shopping women; and old men taking the air in comforters; the caution of people crossing; the universal determination to go on living, when really, fools and gulls that you are, I said, any slate may fly from a roof, any car may swerve, for there is neither rhyme nor reason when a drunk man staggers about with a club in his hand - that is all."
Author: Virginia Woolf
46. "Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."
Author: William Shakespeare

Author: William Shakespeare

Author: William Shakespeare
49. "This wimpled, whining, purblind, wayward boy, this Senior Junior, giant dwarf...Cupid."
Author: William Shakespeare
50. "You are a lover. Borrow Cupid's wingsand soar with them above a common bound."
Author: William Shakespeare

And so people ask God for signs and wonders. Yet when signs are given and wonders are performed, most can't even see them! I therefore believe that it's not signs people should be asking God for; but you should be asking God for Sight!"
