Qu'il n'y a que le physique de cette passion qui soit bon ... Malgré ce que peuvent dire les gens épris, le moral n'en vaut rien usually shortened to qu'il n'y avait de bon en amour que le physique (That there was but good in physical love) is a phrase attributed to Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon.

The phrase is mentioned by Sade in Reflections on the Novel with regards to the French epicureans.
