But some day that will come, and meanwhile don't shrink from yourself, but face yourself calmly and bravely. Have courage; do the best you can with your burden.

But above all be honourable. Cling to your honour for the sake of those others who share the same burden. For their sakes show the world that people like you and they can be quite as selfless and fine as the rest of mankind.

Let your life go to prove this--it would be a really great life-work, Stephen. Youth has its moments of keen intuition, even normal youth -- but the intuition of those who stand mi-way between the sexes is so ruthless, so poignant, so deadly, as to be in the nature of an added scourge She only knew that some great sense of loss, some great sense of incompleteness possessed her, and she let the tears trickle down her face, wiping them off one by one with her finger.

The Well Of Loneliness

It is bad for the soul to know itself a coward, it is apt to take refuge in mere wordy violence Their hearts ached while their lips formed recriminations. Their hearts burst into tears while their eyes remained dry and accusing, staring in hostility and anger They could not forgive and they could not sleep, for neither could sleep without the other's forgiveness, and the hatred that leapt out at moments between them would be drowned in the tears that their hearts were shedding.

It said to itself: Many die, many kill their bodies and souls, but they cannot kill the justice of God, even they cannot kill the eternal spirit.

Here am I the creature you made through your loving; by your passion you created the thing that I am. Who are you to deny me the right to love?

But for you I need never have known existence. Like Cain, I am marked and blemished.
