WILLIAM HENRY LYTTON EARLE BULWER, SIR HENRY BULWER
English diplomat
(1801 - 1872)

A woman may live without a lover, but a lover once admitted, she never goes through life with only one. She is deserted, and cannot bear her anguish and solitude, and hence fills up the void with a second idol.
      - [Love]

Curses are like young chickens,
  And still come home to roost!
      - [Proverbs]

Fresh glides the brook and blows the gale,
  Yet yonder halts the quiet mill;
    The whirring wheel, the rushing sail
      How motionless and still!
        Six days stern Labour shut the poor
          From nature's careless banquet-hall;
            The seventh, an Angel opes the door,
              And, smiling, welcomes all!
      - [Sabbath]

Lovers have an ineffable instinct which detects the presence of rivals.
      - [Love]

My lips pressed themselves involuntarily to hers--a long, long kiss, burning intense--concentrating emotion, heart, soul, all the rays of life's light, into a single focus.
      - [Kisses]

The moment a woman marries, some terrible revolution happens in her system; all her good qualities vanish, presto, like eggs out of a conjuror's box. 'Tis true that they appear on the other side of the box, but for the husband they are gone forever.
      - [Matrimony]

There is not so agonizing a feeling in the whole catalogue of human suffering as the first conviction that the heart of the being whom we most tenderly love is estranged from us.
      - [Estrangement : Unfaithfulness]

Whoever, with an earnest soul,
  Strives for some end from this low world afar,
    Still upward travels though he miss the goal,
      And strays--but towards a star.
      - [Heroes]
