Love and Courtship Anecdotes

 

LOVER IN THE STREET

A French clergy man catechising the youths of his parish, put the first question from the catechism of Heidelberg to a girl,
What is your only consolation in life and death?
The poor wench smiled, but did not answer.
The priest insisted,
Well, then, she said,
‘Since I must tell, it is the young shoemaker of Agneaux street ‘.

BUST OF MYSELF

When Madame de Stael was writing her memoirs a female friend asked her how she would manage to portray herself and her amours.
Oh, answered Madame de Stael,
‘I shall only give a bust of myself.’

WHAT A MEMORY!

A group of actors, Samuel Foote among them, was discussing the marriage of a too well known woman about town, whose pre- marital life had been ,to say the least , adventurous.

It is a good match that she has made , one of the group observed.
And they say she made to her husband a full confession of all her past affairs.
What honesty she must have had, another remarked.
‘What courage!
Yes, put in Foote, and what a memory!’

WOMAN FROM THE HEAVEN
Courtship anecdotes

One of the most unusual beginnings of a romance in the world is the well known case of the great Wagnerian tenor, Lauritz Melchior. When the singer was a young music student he was singing in the garden of his pension in Munich, studying a role. According to his own story, he sang the lines
‘Come to me, my love, on the wings of light’, when to his utter astonishment, a young lady literally dropped out of the sky at his feet. The heavenly visitor was Maria Hacker, a Bavarian actress who had been doing a stunt for a movie thriller. She had parachuted from a plane right into his arms. They were married.

WOMAN FROM THE SEA

One day Nicholas Schenck, movie millionaire, about to board Tom Meighans yacht, saw a slip of a girl standing on the edge of the wharf.
For some inexplicable reason , Mr Schenck recalls, I had an uncontrollable impulse to push her into the water. To my horror- I did.
I had no idea if she could swim. I expected an infuriating young woman. Instead, she came to the surface, blinked the water out of her eyes and smiled a brilliant smile.
By God! I said to myself, that is the girl I am going to marry!
And he did.
