“Where there is love, there is pain.”
~ Spanish Proverb
“We are never so defenseless against suffering as when we love.”

“To love is to suffer.
To avoid suffering one must not love.
But then one suffers from not loving.”
~ Woody Allen
“There is one sad truth I’ve found
While journeying east and west -
The only folk we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.”
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
