“True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness.”
Petrarch.

Obedience

Thomas Carlyle

Woe to him that claims obedience when it is not due; woe to him that refuses it when it is. ”
Thomas Carlyle
