O innocent victims of Cupid,
Remember this terse little verse:
To let a fool kiss you is stupid,
To let a kiss fool you is worse.

E Y Harburg 1898-1981

Inscriptions on a lipstick (1965)

The illustration is ‘Cupid’ by Hendrick Goltzius. Detail of the picture in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Via Wikimedia.
