Flirtation
 
  Flirtation is like the slime on water-plants, making them hard to handle, and when caught, only to be cherished in slimy waters.
            —Donald G. Mitchell

  Flirtations are like motor cars; they either exceed the speed limit and end in a smashup, or they are so slow that a girl nearly dies of nervous prostration waiting for them to get somewhere.
            —Helen Rowland

  Flirtation is like a circulating library, in which we seldom ask twice for the same volume.
            —N. P. Willis
