Comment on this Work
Musical tempo varies, but it does so roughly within the range of the human heartbeat.|
--Dorothy Tennov, "Love and Limerence"
Love is a human religion in which another person is believed in.
Now by these presents let me assure you that you are not only in my heart, but my veins, this morning. I turn from you half abashed--yet you haunt me, and some look, word or touch thrills through my whole frame--yes, at the very moment when I am labouring to think of something, if not somebody, else. Get ye gone Intruder! though I am forced to add dear--which is a call back--
--Mary Wollstonecraft to William Godwin
The pleasures of love are always in proportion to the fear.
--Stendhal, "On Love"
Oh Love! Thou bane of the most generous souls! Thou doubtful pleasure, and thou certain pain.
--George Granville, Baron Lansdowne
