Hearts united in pain and sorrow
will not be separated by joy and happiness.
Bonds that are woven in sadness
are stronger than the ties of joy and pleasure.
Love that is washed by tears
will remain eternally pure and faithful.
― Kahlil Gibran, Love Letters in the Sand: The Love Poems of Khalil Gibran
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
― Kahlil Gibran
