and you will never understand what pain really is until you have lost it.
the perverseness of forty surrounding families cannot prevent her.
Something must and will happen to throw a hero in her way.
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
or am I beautiful because you love me?
Cinderella by Oscar Hammerstein II
Robert Lee Frost
What would still remain of me ?
The ghost within your eyes ?
The whisper in your sighs ?
You see... Believe
And I'm always there.
but there is a greater pain: to love and not be loved again
W. Somerset Maugham, 'Of Human Bondage'
and you were to walk near my grave,
from the very depths of the earth I would hear your footsteps.
Benito Perez Galdos
Love never fails
love never suffers, never resents,
never revenges itself.
Where there is love there is life;
hatred leads to destruction.
with things that revolve around love.
loud, explosive, and liable to maim you if you hold on too long.
That which is called madness,
That which to me,
Is the only sensible way to love.
