Individuals of the earlier species had suffered from an almost insurmountable spiritual isolation from one another. Not even lovers, and scarcely even the geniuses with special insight into personality, ever had anything like accurate vision of one another. [T]he most precious gift that a lover could bring to the beloved was not virginity but sexual experience. The union, it was felt, was the more pregnant the more each party could contribute from previous sexual and spiritual intimacy with others.
Nay, good sir, be not so violent; with speed I cannot render satisfaction Unto the dear companion of my soul, Virginity, whom I thus long have lived with, And part with it so rude and suddenly. Can such friends divide, never to meet again, Without a solemn farewell?thomas middleton
Virginity is now a mere preamble or waiting room to be got out of as soon as possible; it is without significance. Old age is similarly a waiting room, where you go after life’s over and wait for cancer or a stroke. The years before and after the menstrual years are vestigial: the only meaningful condition left to women is that of fruitfulness.
Virginity is the ideal of those who want to deflower.Karl Kraus
Virginity: you don't get that back, because you were in such a big hurry to get rid of it in the first place.
Then worms shall try That long preserved Virginity: And your quaint honour turn to dust; And into ashes all my lust. The grave's a fine and private place, But none I thinkdo there embrace.Andrew Marvell
Ladies, just a little more Virginity, if you don't mind.
Georgie Pringle: The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother: And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their Virginity.dennis potter
An isolated outbreak of Virginity ... is a rash on the face of society. It arouses only pity from the married, and embarrassment from the single.
I always thought of losing my Virginity as a career move.
It is regarded as normal to consecrate Virginity in general and to lust for its destruction in particular.Karl Kraus
Which people desire to lose what they possess? A sick man his fever, a tormented husband his wife, a gambler his debts, and a girl her Virginity.Franz Grillparzer
Your old Virginity is like one of our French withered pears: it looks ill, it eats drily.william shakespeare
It is one of the superstitions of the human mind to have imagined that Virginity could be a virtue.
Virginity, albeit some highly prize it, Compared with marriage, had you tried them both, Differs as much as wine and water doth.Christopher Marlowe
