I loved, I was loved, and my health was good, I had a great deal of money, and I spent it, I was happy and I confessed it to myself. Girl who gave nothing must take nothing. Happy or miserable, life is the only blessing which man possesses. A man never argues well except when his purse is well filled It is only fools who complain. Marriage is the tomb of love.

Giacomo Casanova entered the University of Padua at twelve and graduated at seventeen, in 1742, with a degree in law. At the age of 21, Casanova set out to become a professional gambler.
