The objects that we have known in better days are the main props that sustain the weight of our affections, and give us strength to await our future lot. Wm. HazlittTable Talk. On the Past and Future.
Talk not of wasted affection, affection never was wasted. If it enrich not the heart of another, its waters, returning Back to their springs, like the rain, shall fill them full of refreshment; That which the fountain sends forth returns again to the fountain. LongfellowEvangeline. Pt. II. St. 1.
