True Love

"I already love in you your beauty, but I am only beginning to love in you that which is eternal and ever precious - your heart, your soul. Beauty one could get to know and fall in love with in one hour and cease to love it as speedily; but the soul one must learn to know. Believe me, nothing on earth is given without labour, even love, the most beautiful and natural of feelings."

~ Count Leo Tolstoi, Russion writer, to Valeria Arsenev, his fiancee, November 2nd, 1856.
