“I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion -
I have shudder’d at it.

I could die for you.”
“I’d like to run away
But if you didn’t come
And find me ...
I would die.”
“When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out.”

Is to love and be loved in return.”
“I have loved to the point of madness;
That which is called madness,
That which to me,
Is the only sensible way to love.”
“She walks in beauty,
Like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes.”
“One word frees us
Of all the weight and pain in life,
That word is Love”
“I have learned not to worry about love;
But to honor its coming with all my heart.”
