Prince Andrey Bolkonsky on Love

“I should have never have believed it, if any one had told me I could love like this… It is utterly different from the feeling I once had. The whole world is split into two halves for me: one–she, and there all is happiness, hope, and light; the other half–all where she is not, there all is dejection and darkness…”

— Prince Andrey Bolkonsky in Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace, part 6, chapter 22
