    —Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
    —Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    The reason for the sadness of this modern age and the men who live in it is that it looks for the truth in everything and finds it.
    —Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)
