Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
What law, what reason can deny that gift so sweet, so natural that God has given a stream, a fish, a beast, a bird?
What is life? A madness. What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story. And the greatest good is little enough; for all life is a dream, and dreams themselves are only dreams.
When love is not madness, it is not love.
A good action is never lost; it is a treasure laid up and guarded for the doer's need.
