Frederique, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Paul De Kock

Excerpt from Frederique, Vol. 1 A lady said to me one day: Monsieur Rochebrune, would it be possible for you to love two women at once? I give you my word, madame, I answered, frankly, that I could love half a dozen, and perhaps more for it has often happened that I have loved more than two at the same time. My reply called forth, on the part of the lady in question, a gesture in which there was something very like indignation, and she said, in a decidedly sarcastic tone: For my part, monsieur, I assure you that I would not be content with a sixth of the heart of a man whom I had distinguished by my favor and if I were foolish enough to feel the slightest inclination for him, I should very soon be cured of it when I saw that his love was such a commonplace sentiment.
