'tis vain to struggle, i have struggled long
to love again no more as i once loved.
oh! time! why leave this earliest passion strong?
to tear a heart which pants to be unmoved?
-to the po. june 2, 1819, by lord byron.
it's a universal truth that when you stop looking
for love it finds you. an equally strong truth is
that when you are absolutely resolute in what
you want and what you don't want, love appears.
for lord byron at least, both cosmic rules came into
play at once. they seem simple laws. but like lord
byron had to, sometimes we need to push ourselves
through life's sieve to refine our desires.
it is as painful as it sounds.
