Happy endings are the greatest lies ever told. There is no love that does not end in grief. Love, like every other emotion, is passing. Every memory and emotion is doomed to fade away. Time and death are the ultimate truth — more powerful than any emotion we can ever hope to feel. Love envies... Continue Reading →
