Love and Dreams - Quotes

From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

You simply cannot take it apart just to see what makes it tick, and even if you could, you probably could never get it back together again.

Love is an attachment to another self. Humour is a form of self-detachment - a way of looking at one's existence, one's misfortune or one's discomfort. If you really love, if you really know how to laugh, the result is the same: you forget yourself.

Claude Roy
