„Your high beauty, which has no equal in the world, is painful to you except insofar as it seems to adorn and set off your lovely treasure of chastity.“

—  Francesco Petrarca, Il Canzoniere

L'alta beltà ch'al mondo non à pare
noia t'è, se non quanto il bel thesoro
di castità par ch'ella adorni et fregi.

„In politics, love is a stranger, and when it intrudes upon it nothing is being achieved except hypocrisy.“

—  Hannah Arendt Jewish-American political theorist 1906 - 1975

Letter to James Baldwin (21 November 1962).
General sources
Kontext: In politics, love is a stranger, and when it intrudes upon it nothing is being achieved except hypocrisy. All the characteristics you stress in the Negro people: their beauty, their capacity for joy, their warmth, and their humanity, are well-known characteristics of all oppressed people. They grow out of suffering and they are the proudest possession of all pariahs. Unfortunately, they have never survived the hour of liberation by even five minutes. Hatred and love belong together, and they are both destructive; you can afford them only in private and, as a people, only so long as you are not free.

It is to love, but love in vain.“

„It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know.“

—  Eleanor Roosevelt, My Day

My Day (1935–1962)
Kontext: It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death. (1 April 1939)
