SEPARATION
[ Also see Parting ]

The divorced were never truly married.
      - James Lendall Basford

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
      - Kahlil Gibran

There exists no cure for a heart wounded with the sword of separation.
      - Hitopadesa

I quit Paris unwillingly, because I must part from my friends; and I quit the country unwillingly, because I must part from myself.
      - Joseph Joubert

The limner's art may trace the absent feature,
  And give the eye of distant weeping faith
    To view the form of its idolatry;
      But oh! the scenes 'mid which they met and parted;
        The thoughts--the recollections sweet and bitter,--
          Th' Elysian dreams of lovers, when they loved,--
            Who shall restore them?
      - Charles Robert Maturin

Short retirement urges sweet return.
      - John Milton

When loving hearts are separated, not the one which is exhaled to heaven, but the survivor, it is which tastes the sting of death.
      - Duchesse de Praslin

When two loving hearts are torn asunder, it is a shade better to be the one that is driven away into action than the bereaved twin that petrifies at home.
      - Charles Reade

O thou that dost inhabit in my breast, leave not the mansion so long tenantless; lest, growing ruinous, the building fall and leave no memory of what it was!
      - William Shakespeare

For since mine eyes your joyous sight did miss, my cheerful day is turned to cheerless night.
      - Edmund Spenser

Thy soul * * *
  Is as far from my grasp, is as free,
    As the stars from the mountain-tops be,
      As the pearl in the deaths of the sea,
        From the portionless king that would wear it.
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman
