form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Had we never lov'd sae kindly, Had we never lov'd sae blindly, Never met -- or never parted -- we had never been broken-hearted.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950, Irish-born British dramatist)


A broken heart is a very pleasant complaint for a man in London if he has a comfortable income.


George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950, Irish-born British dramatist)
