“Only the weak blame their past for the faults they find in their present; the strong acknowledge the effects of their past and then move on from it. We are all free to choose whether we will be weak or strong.”
Penny Jordan, The Italian Duke's Virgin Mistress

“It was her nature...her weakness, that for her loving another human being must always have this intensity...this absoluteness.”
