Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts.
~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations, 1860
Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.
Tears are God’s gift to us. Our holy water. They heal us as they flow.
Tears are the silent language of grief.
You can as easily love without trusting as you can hug without embracing.
Deciding whether or not to trust a person is like deciding whether or not to climb a tree, because you might get a wonderful view from the highest branch, or you might simply get covered in sap, and for this reason many people choose to spend their time alone and indoors, where it is harder to get a splinter.
Never trust a husband too far, nor a bachelor too near.
Trust until it is broken. Then beware the man with a broken smile!
“Yet each man kills the thing he loves
By each let this be heard
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word
The coward does it with a kiss
The brave man with a sword”
~ Oscar Wilde, The Ballad Of Reading Gaol
“It was a mistake," you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.”
~David Levithan, The Lover's Dictionary
“He, who had done more than any human being to draw her out of the caves of her secret, folded life, now threw her down into deeper recesses of fear and doubt. The fall was greater than she had ever known, because she had ventured so far into emotion and had abandoned herself to it.”
~ Anaïs Nin
“If you're betrayed, release disappointment at once.
By that way, the bitterness has no time to take root.”
~ Toba Beta
“Do you believe a man can truly love a woman and constantly betray her?Never mind physically but betray her in his mind,in the very "poetry of his soul".Well,it's not easy but men do it all the time.”
~ Mario Puzo
Betrayal is common for men with no conscience.”
~ Toba Beta
Our faith in the present dies out long before our faith in the future.
We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there.
~Charles F. Kettering
The past can't see you, but the future is listening.
I have seen the future and it is very much like the present - only longer.
