PITHY QUOTE FROM Silver Fork Novels

Open quotes
OF all passions, love is the most engrossing and the most superstitious. How often has a leaf, a star, a breath of wind, been held as an omen! It draws all things into somewhat of relation to itself: it is despotic, and jealous of all authority but its own: it bars the heart against the entrance of other feelings, and deems wandering thoughts its traitors.
