Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

“Love is the business of the idle, but the idleness of the busy”

“Two lives that once part are as ships that divide”

“I cannot love as I have loved, And yet I know not why; It is the one great woe of life To feel all feeling die”

“If you wish to be loved, show more of your faults than your virtues”

“In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves”

“Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem”

“A good heart is better than all the heads in the world”
