Zooey Deschanel

Women who are to some extent resistant, whom one cannot posses at once, whom one does not even know at first whether one will ever posses, are the only interesting ones. 

The most attractive are not those who allow us to kiss them at once (we soon feel ungrateful) or those who never allow us to kiss them (we soon forget them) but those who know how carefully to administer varied doses of hope and despair. 

– from “Essays in Love” & “How Proust Can Change Your Life” written by Alain de Botton
