Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Telling a depressed person to be happy, Is like telling a blind person to just look harder. It just doesn’t work.

Jean Baptiste Lacordaire
The best things in life are unseen, that is why we close our eyes when cry, kiss, and dream.
The moment we indulge our affections, the earth is metamorphosed, there is no winter and no night; all tragedies, all ennuis, vanish, all duties even.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The true feeling of sex is that of a deep intimacy, but above all of a deep complicity.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are only three choices in life. You either live with regrets, live with no regrets, or you live always wondering “What if?”
There is no failure
except in no longer trying.
Those who restrain desire, do so because there’s weak enough to be restrained.
When the self is no more,
there is simply an abiding in the beloved.
The game goes on and there is a response to the game.
But the response comes from nowhere and goes to nowhere.
And the game and the respons is the divine expression.
All and everything is seen and heard and felt as the beloved.
And the beloved is the ground of all that is.
