Amy Levy

  • ... they acted and reacted on one another, deceiving and deceived, with that strange, unconscious hypocrisy of lovers.

  • A lover may be a shadowy creature, but husbands are made of flesh and blood.

  • There will be strange ebbs and flows in the tide of race feelings.

  • I lean against the birch-tree, / My arms around it twine, / It pulses, and leaps, and quivers, / Like a human heart to mine.
