[leaf on pavement]QOTD, by Robert Flaceli[unknown char]re, Love in Ancient Greece[Wiki], p.19, quoted in The Mistress: Histories, Myths and Interpretations of the "Other Woman" by Victoria Griffin, p.42, Bloomsbury Press:

"Death changes all. It gives weight and duration to human destiny, above all to human love. Among the Immortals love is merely a kind of game, without serious aftereffects. But among men it is always an important, sometimes a tragic business."

Thats such a wonderful quote. Only real, living beings can have values. Every day is a good one, when you wake up alive.
