    • And loveliest sight of all, in front of the fire, stretched at full length, was his tiger - and on him - also at full length - reclined the lady, garbed in some strange clinging garment of heavy purple crepe, its hem embroidered with gold, one white arm resting on the beast's head, her back supported by a pile of the velvet cushions, and a heap of rarely bound books at her side, while between her red lips was a rose not redder than they - an almost scarlet rose.
    • A madness of tender caressing seized her. She purred as a tiger might have done, while she undulated like a snake.
    • No matter what he does, one always forgives him. It does not depend upon looks, either - although this actual person is abominably good-looking - it does not depend upon intelligence or character or - anything - as you say, it is just 'it'.
    • To have 'It', the fortunate possessor must have that strange magnetism which attracts both sexes.

There must be physical attraction, but beauty is unnecessary.

    • Prudent readers will do well to hold Three Weeks at arm's length, unless they want to be cut by flying adjectives.
