Friendship often ends in love, but love in friendship – never.
Rebellion cannot exist without a strange form of love.
It is necessary to fall in love… if only to provide an alibi for all the random despair you are going to feel anyway.
Style, like sheer silk underwear, sometimes hides eczema.

Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.
