came to love.
Love will find its way through paths where wolves would fear to prey.
-But if she wasn't impervious to the pain of heartbreak what hope is there for the rest of us?
The great art of life is sensation. To feel that you exist, even in pain. I mean would you not die for love? After all, what is life if it does not have love?
-Nothing, according to you poets.
You are... I've always believed that a woman should be intelligent enough to understand what I'm saying but not intelligent enough to be able to form ideas or... opinions of her own. You, Miss Godwin, have the chance to prove me wrong.
People should live and love as they wish. But one thing I've never understood is... why did two radicals such as your parents succumb to marriage?
-To legitimize me.
Idealism and love give us courage. But they do not prepare you for the sacrifice required to love a man like Percy.

To love reading is to have everything within your reach.
When silvery clouds float through the wildered brain
When every sight of lovely,
wild and grand
...so fair, so wild a shape
Hath ever yet beheld
As that which reined
the coursers of the air
And poured the magic
of her gaze
Upon the maiden's sleep
And what, may I ask, would you constitute as "substantial" in your eyes?
-Anything that curdles the blood and quickens the beatings of the heart.
The sunlight clasp the Earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea
What are all these kissings worth...
If thou kiss not me?"
...you are not my lover. You are a dalliance. A lapse in judgement.
Rid yourself of the thoughts and words of other people, Mary.
It was a dreary night of November and... It was a dreary night of November that I beheld the accomplishment of my toils. Remember that I am thy creature. I ought to be thy Adam but I am rather the fallen angel whom thou drivest from joy for no misdeed. Everywhere I see bliss... from which... from which, from which I alone am irrevocably excluded I was benevolent and good
Misery made me a fiend Make me happy. And I shall again be virtuous.
"But soon", he cried "I shall die and what I now feel be no longer felt. Soon... these burning miseries will be extinct. I shall ascend my funeral pyre triumphantly and exult in the agony of the torturing flames. My spirit will sleep in peace or if it thinks it will not surely think thus. Farewell."
