if you only knew...

"You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. 
Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. 
I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own 
than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. 
Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, 
that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. 
Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant."
-Captain Wentworth in a letter to Anne Elliot,
Persuasion, Jane Austen (Vol. 2, Ch. 11)
