Its not that we have to quit this life one day its how many things we have to quit all at once holding hands hotel rooms music the physics of falling leaves vanilla and jasmine poppies smiling anthills the color of the sky coffee and cashmere literature sparks and subway trains...

William Shakespeare quote #337 from Shakespeare's Sonnets

Sonnet 130My mistress eyes are nothing like the sunCoral is far more red than her lips redIf snow be white why then her breasts are dunIf hairs be wires black wires grow on her head.I have seen roses damaskd red and whiteBut no such roses see I in her cheeksAnd in some perfumes is there more delightThan in the breath that from my mistress reeks.I love to hear her speak yet well I knowThat music hath a far more pleasing soundI grant I never saw a goddess goMy mistress when she walks treads on the ground And yet by heaven I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare.

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez quote #305 from Love in the Time of Cholera

To him she seemed so beautiful so seductive so different from ordinary people that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones why no one elses heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid the flight of her hands the gold of her laughter. He had not missed a single one of her gestures not one of the indications of her character but he did not dare approach her for fear of destroying the spell.
