“My love for you is a terrible thing — as I warned you when I first told you I loved you. It is the earth and the sweet seasons, and the smell of hay and honeysuckle and the shadow of trees and the lovely shapes of winter trees or of Chaldon hills — but it is also the fire in the belly of earth. Do not every forget that. We are lost if we forget that.”
“I feel as if I am trying to row against wind and tide, with soft rubber oars.”
Valentine Ackland, English poet
(1906 - 1969)
