“There ought to be laughter in love. But there also ought to be wonder.”
Thomas Burnett Swann, How Are the Mighty Fallen

“...she grasped the terrible truth that love can never be compelled, from man, from sprite, from beast; that one who loves, however she longs for requital, however long she waits, may receive in return the reverse of what she gives, the dark side of the moon.”
Thomas Burnett Swann, The Weirwoods

“A man’s love for a man is neither more nor less than a man’s love for a woman, it is only different.”
Thomas Burnett Swann, How Are the Mighty Fallen
