Quote
  • “- King Mongkut of Siam: A woman is designed for pleasing man that is all. A man is deigned to be pleased by many women
    - Anna Leonowens: Then how do you explain, your majesty, that many men remain faithful to one wife?
    - King Mongkut of Siam: They are sick.
    - Anna Leonowens: Oh, but you do expect women to be faithful?
    - King Mongkut of Siam: Naturally!
    - Anna Leonowens: Well why naturally?
    - King Mongkut of Siam: Because it is natural. It is like old Siamese saying. A girl is like a blossom, with honey for just one man. A man is like a honey bee and gather all he can. To fly from blossom to blossom a honey must be free. But blossom must not ever fly from bee to bee to bee.”

    Yul Brynner - King Mongkut of Siam
    Deborah Kerr - Anna Leonowens
