„Turn where you will, everywhere, the man and the woman ever confronting each other, the man who loves a hundred times, the woman who has the power to love so much and to forget so much.“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

The Inferno (1917), Ch. XVI
Kontext: Turn where you will, everywhere, the man and the woman ever confronting each other, the man who loves a hundred times, the woman who has the power to love so much and to forget so much. I went on my way again. I came and went in the midst of the naked truth. I am not a man of peculiar and exceptional traits. I recognise myself in everybody. I have the same desires, the same longings as the ordinary human being. Like everybody else I am a copy of the truth spelled out in the Room, which is, "I am alone and I want what I have not and what I shall never have." It is by this need that people live, and by this need that people die.

„The love I feel for you
Is so deep and runs so true
That I even love the longing
That I feel because of you.“

Tenho por ti uma paixão
Tão forte tão acrisolada,
Que até adoro a saudade
Quando por ti é causada
