Intrigue
 
  Intrigue is a court distemper.
Mme. Deluzy.    
  1
  Every woman is at heart a rake.
Pope.    
  2
  As love increases, prudence diminishes.
La Rochefoucauld.    
  3
  Audacity as against modesty will win the battle over most men.
Mme. Deluzy.    
  4
  There are many women who never have had one intrigue; but there are few who have had only one.
La Rochefoucauld.    
  5
  There are many women who have never intrigued, and many men who have never gamed; but those who have done either but once are very extraordinary animals.
Colton.    
  6
  When women oppose themselves to the projects and ambition of men, they excite their lively resentment; if in their youth they meddle with political intrigues, their modesty must suffer.
Mme. de Staël.    
  7
  If often happens too, both in courts and in cabinets, that there are two things going on together,—a main plot and an under-plot; and he that understands only one of them will, in all probability, be the dupe of both. A mistress may rule a monarch, but some obscure favorite may rule the mistress.
Colton.
