→ The end was just the beginning.
• Love doesn’t end, just because we don’t see each other.
• People go on loving God, don’t they? All their lives. Without seeing him.
• Tell Him I’m sorry. I’m too human. Too weak. Tell Him I can’t keep my promises. I’m tired of being without you.
• You see I never stopped loving you, even though I couldn’t see you.
• I’ve only made two promises in my life. One was to marry Henry, the other is to stop seeing you. And I’m too weak to keep either.
• I had tempted fate, and fate had accepted.
• If only you knew how little you had to revenge.
