"Hell's afloat in lover's tears." ~ Dorothy Parker
"Once, when I was young and true,
Someone left me sad -
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that was very bad.
Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse."
~ Dorothy Parker
"Only choose in marriage a woman who you would choose as a friend if she were a man." ~ Joseph Joubert
"It has ever been since time began,
And ever will be, till time lose breath,
That love is a mood *no more* to man,
And love to a woman is life or death.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
You shall begin it serenely and
with too high a spirit to be encumbered
with your old nonsense.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Too slow for those who Wait,
Too swift for those who Fear,
Too long for those who Grieve,
Too short for those who Rejoice,
But for those who Love,
Time is Eternity.
"The soul that can speak with its eyes can also kiss with a gaze." ~ Unknown
