Nothing surely is as potent as a law that may not be disobeyed. It has the force of the water drop that hollows the stone. A small dainty task, if it be really daily, will beat the labours of a spasmodic Hercules.

How could two people who were so in love not end up happily ever after? It had to work. Didn't it?
—Elizabeth Gilbert in Love

—Helen M. Stump
