"I have found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakspear said, “Journeys end in lover’s meeting.” What an extrodinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I’m more than willing to believe shakespear had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I’m constantly amazed by it’s shear power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespear who also said. “Love is blind.”
Now that is something I know to be true. For some, quite inexplicably, Love fades. For others love is simply lost. But then of course Love can also be found… even if just for the night. And then there’s another kind of love… The cruelest kind. One that almost kills it’s victims. It’s called Unrequited Love. Of that I am an expert.
Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories? Those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victim of the one-sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones. The walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space. Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willing loved that man for over three miserable years. The absolute worst years of my life. The worst Christmases, the worst birthdays. New Years Eve’s brought in by tears and valium. These years that I’ve been in love have been the darkest days of my life. All because I’ve been cursed by being in love with a man that does not and will not love me back. Oh God just the sight of him…. Heart pounding, throat thickening, I absolutely can’t swallow. All the usual symptoms."

"I took a course in art last winter. I learnt the difference between a fine oil painting, and a mechanical thing, like a photograph. The photograph shows only the reality. The painting shows not only the reality, but the dream behind it. It's our dreams, doctor, that carry us on. They separate us from the beasts. I wouldn't want to go on living if I thought it was all just eating, and sleeping, and taking my clothes off, I mean putting them on…" – Veta Louise Simmons, Harvey

"It seems to me that love is everywhere.
