The most despairing songs are the most beautiful, and I know some immortal ones that are pure tears.




There is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.




Each memorable verse of a true poet has two or three times the written content.




Things they don't understand always cause a sensation among the English.




Great artists have no country.




How glorious it is - and also how painful - to be an exception.




One must not trifle with love.




The return makes one love the farewell.




With a kiss let us set out for an unknown world.




I cannot help it - in spite of myself, infinity torments me.
