    “like the rainbow
    after the rain
    joy will reveal itself
    after sorrow”
  2. #16
    “Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me prov’d,
    I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.”
  3. #17
    “And you’re with me. And the journey’s finished. But after coming all that way I don’t want to give up yet. It’s not like me, somehow, if you understand.”
  4. #18

    “The real test of good manners is to be able to put up with bad manners pleasantly.”
  6. #20
    “Love in action is a harsh and dreadful thing compared with love in dreams. Love in dreams is greedy for immediate action, rapidly performed and in the sight of all.

But active love is labor and fortitude, and for some people too, perhaps, a complete science.”

  4. #25

  5. #26
    “Even when I bore the pain of my search valiantly, in silence, the mute sufferings of my soul were loud voices calling to your mercy. You knew what I endured, but no man knew.”
  6. #27
    “They were not half living, or quarter living. They were simply so many bags of bones in which sparks of life flutter faintly.”
  7. #28
    “The possibility has been established for the production of...a Master Race, the future “masters of the earth”...made to endure for millennia - a higher kind of men who... employ democratic Europe as their most pliant and supple instrument for getting hold of the destinies of the earth.”
  8. #29
