Girls we love for what they are; young men for what they promise to be.
One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.
To witness two lovers is a spectacle for the gods.
Everything in the world may be endured except continual prosperity.
Personality is everything in art and poetry.
Nature knows no pause in progress and development, and attaches her curse on all inaction.
The mediator of the inexpressible is the work of art.
Love does not dominate; it cultivates.
Love and desire are the spirit's wings to great deeds.
