Woman's destiny is to be wanton, like the bitch, the she-wolf; she must belong to all who claim her.
— Marquis De Sade

War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder.
Alexander Berkman wanton quote

People who make puns are like wanton boys that put coppers on the railroad tracks. They amuse themselves and other children, but their little trick may upset a freight train of conversation for the sake of a battered witticism.
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

Nuptial love makes mankind; friendly love perfects it; but wanton love corrupts and debases it.
— Francis Bacon

What will be the judgment a century hence concerning the lorded works of our favorite composers today? Inasmuch as nearly everything is subject to the changes of time, and - more's the pity- the fashions of time, only that which is good and true will endure like a rock and no wanton hand will ever venture to defile it. Then, let every man do that which is right, strive with all his might towards the goal which can never be obtained, develop to the last breath the gifts with which the gracious Creator has endowed him, and never cease to learn. For life is short, art eternal.
— wanton quotation by Ludwig van Beethoven
