The sea always filled her with longing, though for what she was never sure. ~ Cornelia Funke
There is a space between man's imagination and man's attainment that may only be traversed by his longing. ~Khalil Gibran
We look before and after,
And pine for what is not;
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell
Of saddest thought. ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
We would give anything for what we have. ~Tony Hoagland
