  • "Separated lovers cheat absence by a thousand fancies which have their own reality. They are prevented from seeing one another and they cannot write; nevertheless they find countless mysterious ways of corresponding, by sending each other the song of birds, the scent of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the sighing of the wind, and the gleam of the stars-all the beauties of creation."
  • "The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved."
  • "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossile to be silent."
  • "Life is the flower for which love is the honey."
  • "Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake."
