Bad chances were better than no chances.
We conceal it from ourselves in vain - we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it.
Better never to have met you in my dream than to wake and reach for hands that are not there.
Otomo No Yakamochi
A mighty pain to love it is, and 'tis a pain that pain to miss; but of all the pains, the greatest pain is to love, but love in vain.
Real love is a pilgrimage. It happens when there is no strategy, but it is very rare because most people are strategists.
Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames.
No one has ever loved anyone the way everyone wants to be loved.
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
Love is a haunting melody
That I have never mastered
And I fear I never will.
William S. Burroughs
