How to be an alien - George Mikes

This quote was added by cut_silk19
If a continental youth wants to declare his love to a girl, he kneels down, tells her that she is the sweetest, the most charming and ravishing person in the world and that he would be unable to live one more minute without her. Often, to give a little more emphasis to the statement, he shoots himself on the spot. This is a normal weekday declaration of love in the more temperamental continental countries.
