A woman’s strength isn’t just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It’s also about how much she must handle after she’s broken.
It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.
E.M. Forster, “A Room With A View”(via mulberryrain)
