Quotes Containing affection:
Oscar Wilde: ''"The Love that dare not speak its name" in this century is such a great affection of an elder for a younger man as there was between David and Jonathan, such as Plato made the very basis of his philosophy, and such as you find in the sonnets of Michelangelo and Shakespeare. It is that deep, spiritual affection that is as pure as it is perfect... It is in this century misunderstood... and on account of it I am placed where I am now.'' (Statement made during his 1st trial: April 30, 1895)
Nina Borowsky (Jennifer Aniston) in Object Of My Affection (1998): ''Freud doesn''t know dick about women!''
Rodney Fraser (Nigel Hawthorne) and Nina Borowski (Jennifer Aniston) in The Object of My Affection (1998) - Rodney Fraser: ''Have you noticed that you''re the only practicing heterosexual at your Thanksgiving dinner?'' - Nina Borowski: ''I haven''t practiced for a while.''
