Robert Green Ingersoll
I hate failure and that divorce was a Number One failure in my eyes. It was the worst period of my life. Neither Desi nor I have been the same since, physically or mentally.
True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be denied where it does.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
