Famous Quotes

A student asked me to proof a book she's working on, and in it was this gem:

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
--Anais Nin

you forgot the last line:

"it dies because it never was."

I looked up the quote on some quote sites after I read it, just to make sure it was right. Even the site I checked left out that last line. I like it better without it.

Love is such a strange mix of biology, psychology, and timing. I don't think I'll ever fully understand it...maybe that would ruin it anyway. The best choices I've ever made in love were when I stopped trying to analyze it and simply allowed it to be...or to NOT be. I don't think that quote needs the Sarah clause, either...it's much better without it.
