„Our love affair ended in tears but a deep bond grew out of it, and that's something nobody can take away from us. It's unreachable“

—  Freddie Mercury British singer, songwriter and record producer 1946 - 1991

On his relationship with Mary Austin, as quoted in "Rock On Freddie" (1985).
Contexto: Our love affair ended in tears but a deep bond grew out of it, and that's something nobody can take away from us. It's unreachable … All my lovers ask me why they can't replace her, but it's simply impossible.
I don't feel jealous of her lovers because. of course, she has a life to lead, and so do I. Basically, I try to make sure she's happy with whoever she's with and she tries to do the same for me.
We look after each other and that's a wonderful form of love. I might have all the problems in the world, but I have Mary and that gets me through.
