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.

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

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.

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
