Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs.
If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don’t have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough.
If one of two lovers is loyal, and the other jealous and false, how may their friendship last, for Love is slain!
This is one of the miracles of love: It gives a power of seeing through its own enchantments and yet not being disenchanted.
Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.
