For most people, the process of finding the perfect partner is one trial and error: breakups, makeups, missed opportunities and misunderstandings.

  57. “Today’s political leaders demonstrate their low opinion of the public with every social law they pass. They believe that, if given the right to choose, the citizenry will probably make the wrong choice.
