When love is not madness it is not love.

For all life is a dream and dreams themselves are only dreams.

'Tis not where we lie but whence we fell, the loss of heaven's the greatest pain in hell.

What is life? A madness. What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a story. And the greatest good is little enough, for all life is a dream and dreams themselves are only dreams.

One may know how to gain a victory and know not how to use it.

Green is the prime color of the world and that from which its loveliness arises.

For even in dreams a good deed is not lost.

These flowers which were splendid and sprightly waking in the dawn of the morning, in the evening will be a pitiful frivolity sleeping in the cold night's arms.

What law what reason can deny that gift so sweet so natural that God has given a stream a fish a beast a bird?

But whether it be dream or truth to do well is what matters. If it be truth for truth's sake. If not then to gain friends for the time when we awaken.
