An accomplished flirt

In the search for ceremony and program quotes, we've come across several we love but that aren't right for this purpose. Here's one of them:

There would have been the making of an accomplished flirt in me, because my lucidity shows me each move of the game - but that, in the same instant, a reaction of contempt makes me sweep all the counters off the board and cry out: - "Take them all - I don't want to win - I want to lose everything to you!"

- Edith Wharton to W. Morton Fullerton, June 8, 1908
