Quotes I Love, Reflections

Tragedy of love – Quote

“The tragedy of love is not death or separation. How long do you think it would have been before one or other of them ceased to care? Oh, it is dreadfully bitter to look at a woman whom you have loved with all your heart and soul, so that you felt you could not bear to let her out of your sight, and realise that you would not mind if you never saw her again. The tragedy of love is indifference.”

~ W. Somerset Maugham (from the book Rain and Other South Sea Stories)

I’m so in love with the writing style of Maugham. It speaks to me too much. All his stories are heartachingly beautiful!!
