About this Quote

This quote by Honore de Balzac suggests that the most passionate and extreme love affairs often begin with a celebratory and indulgent drink, such as Champagne, but ultimately end with a more relaxing and calming beverage, like tisane (organic tea). This could be interpreted as a metaphor for the stages of a romantic relationship. The initial enjoyment and excitement of falling in love is represented by Champagne, while the later phases, when the strength might have faded, are symbolized by the comforting and healing residential or commercial properties of tisane. Overall, this quote highlights the ups and downs of love and the importance of discovering balance and serenity in a relationship.
