The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much.

--Amelia E. Barr


And, after all, what is a lie? ‘Tis but
The truth in masquerade.

--Lord Byron, from Don Juan, Canto II, St. 37


Christians have burnt each other, quite persuaded
That all the Apostles would have done as they did.

--Lord Byron, from Don Juan, Canto I, St. 83


Sorrow is knowledge; they who know the most
Must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth,
The Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.

--Lord Byron, from Manfred, Act. I, Sc. I, Line 10
