Quotes with satisfactory
I would advise any woman against having an affair with a married man believing he will ever leave his wife, no matter how often he says his wife does not understand him. Love is not as necessary to a man's happiness as it is to a woman's. If her marriage is satisfactory, a woman will seldom stray. A man can be totally contented and still be out howling at the moon.
Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.
The Art of Loving (1956). The full quotation contains a more reserved statement, but this shorter version is non-the-less widely quoted.
Society must be organized in such a way that man's social, loving nature is not separated from his social existence, but becomes one with it.
