“We are born with two incurable diseases, life, from which we die, and hope, which says maybe death isn't the end.”
Andrew M. Greeley

“He returned her love. He lusted after her sweet young body. He wanted her the way he wanted to breathe the spring air.
He had never loved anyone before. He had not known even what this feeling for his tiny slave was.
Now in the crisp, clear spring sunlight, he knew.”
Andrew M. Greeley, The Magic Cup

“His heart was now beating rapidly. He wanted to embrace her, cover her with kisses, caress her hair, touch her breast, stroke her thighs: he wanted to sing songs for her, dance dances for her, write poems for her.”
Andrew M. Greeley
