Love in Action

Filed under: book related,Word Related — Honilima @ 1:05 pm

Love in action is a harsh and dreadful thing compared to love in dreams. Love in dreams is greedy for immediate action, rapidly performed and in the sight of all. Men will give their lives if only the ordeal does not last long but is soon over, with all looking on and applauding as though on the stage. But active love is labor and fortitude, and for some people too, perhaps, a complete science.

Fyodor Dostoevsky , The Brothers Karamazov
