- "The only way of knowing a person is to love them without hope."
- "The idea that happiness could have a share in beauty would be too much of a good thing."
More In Experience

- "I’m interested in all forms of performance, yet I think it’s difficult to be as equally talented in all of them as they call for such different skills. At the moment, I still feel I’m learning and want as much experience and variety as possible."― Felicity Jones
- "All observers not laboring under hallucinations of the senses are agreed, or can be made to agree, about facts of sensible experience, through evidence toward which the intellect is merely passive, and over which the individual will and character have no control."― Chauncey Wright
