What I Have Gathered

“Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding.  To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again – this is the brave and happy life.”

~ J.E. Buckrose in “What I Have Gathered”

[J.E. Buckrose is a pseudonym of the English novelist Annie Edith Jameson, née Foster (1868-1931).]
