"I’m not sentimental—I’m as romantic as you are. The idea, you know,
is that the sentimental person thinks things will last—the romantic
person has a desperate confidence that they won’t."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise
"Tonight I can write the saddest lines
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too."
— Pablo Neruda, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair
