„I know love is eternal, so also are folly, lies and roses.“

—  Alice Borchardt, livro The Silver Wolf

In this world our hopes for the best are so often disappointed
Love is eternal. That is its terror and its final beauty. Love never ends. The joy may go out of it, and in time even the pain may end. But it lingers like a living thing and follows you every moment of your life.
The Silver Wolf

„Heart of my heart, the world is young;
Love lies hidden in every rose!“

Contexto: Heart of my heart, the world is young;
Love lies hidden in every rose!
Every song that the skylark sung
Once, we thought, must come to a close:
Now we know the spirit of song,
Song that is merged in the chant of the whole,
Hand in hand as we wander along,
What should we doubt of the years that roll?
