We have each an individual soul. On another soul may rest all its hopes and joys, but on God only rests its worth, its duties, and its nobility.
Стр. 190 - ... next world ; we cannot be parted ; we belong to one another. Despite all I have seen of false, foolish, weak attachments, unholy marriages, the after-life of which is rendered unholier still by struggling against the inevitable, still I believe in the one true love that binds a woman's heart faithful to one man in this life, and, God grant it, in the next. All this I am and could be for one man. But how worthless should I be to any other man but Richard Burton ! I should love Richard's wild,...
