“What Reason weaves, by Passion is undone.”
Alexander Pope, Essay on Man and Other Poems

Anaïs Nin
“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
Anaïs Nin

Christopher Marlowe
“Who ever loved that loved not at first sight?”
Christopher Marlowe

David Searls
“Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.”
David Searls

Oscar Wilde
“Yes, death. Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forget life, to be at peace. You can help me. You can open for me the portals of death's house, for love is always with you, and love is stronger than death is.”
Oscar Wilde, The Canterville Ghost
