“Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her”
“You, the one I've waited for
from the day I was born.
You, the one who taught me
what happiness is.
Even if a sorrowful parting were to come
don't forget that I love you”
“I shan’t make you love me any the more by giving myself away like this —
but oh my dear, I can’t be clever and stand-offish with you: I love you too much for that. Too truly.
You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art.
But you have broken down my defences. And I don’t really resent it.”
Fill my heart with song and let me sing for ever more
“You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you”
“For the first instant she was terribly frightened and she turned pale.
She jumped up and looked at him trembling. But at the the same moment she understood,
and a light of infinite happiness came into her eyes.
She knew and had no doubt that he loved her beyond everything and that at last the moment had come. ”
“When our eyes met, I felt that I was growing pale.A curious sensation of terror came over me.
I knew that I had come face to face with someone whose mere personality was so fascinating that,
if I allowed it do so,it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul, my very art itself.”
“I love her so completely myself, so intensely,
so fully, grasp nothing, know nothing, have nothing but her!”
“I thought I would never say the words that now come naturally to me when I see you – I adore you.
I adore you with all my body and soul ...You are my destiny, my eternity, my life.”
