In honor of Valentine's Day

One of my favorite declarations of love from literature:

"You are my wife, [yet] I love you like a mistress."

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I have a good laugh every time I think of it.

Now, quick, where is this line from?

Here's a hint: I bet Nicolas Sarkozy would like nothing better than for no one to know where this line is from.

Happy Valentine's Day, one and all.

I love that first quote! So funny!

What is it from? My best guess is a Carla Bruni song, but Google gave me no leads.

Maren, lol. It's from "La Princesse de Clèves"
I cheated though by inserting that "yet." It was reductive of me to do so but it would have required too much contextualization otherwise.
