"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things: of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--of cabbages--and kings--and why the sea is boiling hot--and whether pigs have wings."

"I shall go to bed without you, sleep without you. Let me sleep, I beg you. For several nights I have felt you in my arms; a happy dream, but it is not you"


From Napoleon:

    • "...apart from you there is no joy; away from you, the world is a desert where I am alone and cannot open my heart. You have taken more than my soul; you are the one thought of my life."
    • "...the day I lose your heart will be the day Nature loses warmth and life for me."
    • "Love me like your eyes; but that is not enough: like yourself, more than yourself, than your thoughts, your life, all of you."
    • "Nature is frail when one feels deeply, when one is loved by you."
    • "I shall go to bed without you, sleep without you. Let me sleep, I beg you. For several nights I have felt you in my arms; a happy dream, but it is not you."

From Beethoven:

    • "...can you change the fact that you are not wholly mine, I not wholly thine."
    • "If our hearts were always close together, I would have none of these. My heart is full of so many things to say to you - ah - there are moments when I feel that speech amounts to nothing at all." -
    • "...remain my true, my only treasure, my all as I am yours."
    • "I am resolved to wander so long away from you until I can fly to your arms and say that I am really at home with you, and can send my soul enwrapped in you into the land of spirits."
    • "Oh continue to love me - never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved. Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours."

From Lord Byron:

    • "God knows I wish you happy, and when I quit you, or rather when you from a sense of duty to your husband and mother quit me, you shall acknowledge the truth of what I again promise and vow, that no other in word or deed shall ever hold the place in my affection which is and shall be most sacred to you, till I am nothing."
    • " there anything on earth or heaven would have made me so happy as to have made you mine long ago?"
    • "I care not who knows this - what use is made of it - it is you and to you only that they owe yourself, I was and am yours, freely and most entirely, to obey, to honour, love and fly with you when, where, and how you yourself might and may determine."

From John Keats:

    • "My dear Girl I love you ever and ever and without reserve. The more I have known you the more have I lov'd. In every way - even my jealousies have been agonies of Love, in the hottest fit I ever had I would have died for you."
    • "The last of your kisses was ever the sweetest; the last smile the brightest; the last movement the gracefullest."

From Voltaire:

    • "I am a prisoner here in the name of the King; they can take my life, but not the love that I feel for you. Yes, my adorable mistress, to-night I shall see you, if I had to put my head on the block to do it."
    • "No, nothing has the power to part me from you; our love is based upon virtue, and will last as long as our lives."
