"The fact is that love is like a tree, it grows of its own accord, strikes deep roots throughout our being, and continues to put out leaves on a heart in ruins. And what defies explanation is that the blinder the passion, the more tenacious it is. It is never more solid than when it lacks all reason."—Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame

The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.
