„And if you say run, I'll run with you
And if you say hide, we'll hide.
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two.
If you should fall
Into my arms
And tremble like a flower.“

Ὅτι οὐδὲν ἧττον τὰ αὐτὰ ποιήσουσι, κἂν σὺ διαρραγῇς. VIII, 4
„I see you around sometimes and my heart just melts.
You're looking like if you had your wish, you'd be somewhere else.
And it just breaks my heart to see you here this way.
Someday I'll get the nerve to walk up to you and say
This is the last worthless evening that you'll have to spend.
Just gimme a chance to show you how to love again.“
— Don Henley American singer, lyricist, producer and drummer 1947
