Yeah. Though that alone doesn’t make it less dangerous or easier to deal with...
Topic: Let's not borrow trouble ... The rate of interest is too high.

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)


Yeah. If one love is enough for the whole love-transaction, why not? It's a risk we must take on.

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864)


Yeah. Anyway there must be some kind of mutual attraction between them as a precondition for any fruitful prolonged companionship...
Topic: Sweet are the uses of adversity which, like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in his head.

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)


Yeah. These proceedings can be regularly and diligently repeated but not eternally...

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


Yeah. Reasons can’t stand against feelings. Faith does sometimes. Right?
Topic: Deep unspeakable suffering may well be called a baptism, a regeneration, the initiation into a new state.
