Perché quando siamo infelici comprendiamo meglio l'infelicità altrui; il sentimento non si frantuma ma si concentra...

Completely, perfectly and incandescently happy.
Jane Austen
Such a perfect line to describe the joy of true love as Jane Austen writes about the relationship between Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts

Quote
They say you don’t get over someone until you find someone or something better. As humans, we don’t deal well with emptiness. Any empty space must be filled. Immediately. The pain of emptiness is too strong. It compels the victim to fill that place. A single moment with that empty spot causes excruciating pain. That’s why we run from distraction to distraction and from attachment to attachment.

Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
