 “Well, let it pass; April is over, April is over. There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Sensible Thing” 

“Look at that,’ she whispered, and then after a moment: ‘I’d like to just get one of those pink clouds and put you in it and push you around.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
