"I shall hear in heaven."
— Beethoven’s last words
"First love is unrequited ultimately because it’s so huge. It’s such an act of giving and it requires so much back that it can never be given back. It’s like an atom bomb…It’s all the energy of who you are and who you want to be and what you love and what you hope to be explodes. It is impossible for a single…human being to offer that back to you in a mutual way."
"Tell those girls with rifles for minds
That their jokes don’t make me laugh
They only make me feel like dying
In the unguarded moment"
— the Church
"Truth sits upon the lips of dying men."
— Matthew Arnold
