If you don't love me, it does not matter, anyway I can love for both of us.
One can acquire everything in solitude except character.
Only great minds can afford a simple style.
People happy in love have an air of intensity.
True love makes the thought of death frequent, easy, without terrors; it merely becomes the standard of comparison, the price one would pay for many things.
