“A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.”
“Loveliest of lovely things are they
On earth that soonest pass away.
The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.”
William Cullen Bryant
“A life without love, without the presence of the beloved, is nothing but a mere magic-lantern show. We draw out slide after slide, swiftly tiring of each, and pushing it back to make haste for the next.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
