There is always one who loves, and one who allows himself to be loved.

Il y a toujours celui qui baise, et celui qui tend la joue.

(There is always one who kisses, and one who offers his or her cheek to be kissed).

For once, this is something on which the English and the French are in total agreement, but the author is anonymous.
