Quote' Of: Richard Wagner / Romantic Composer
'… (there is) henceforth no end to the yearning, longing, rapture, and misery of Love:
by Toby Twigg
world, power, fame, honor, chivalry, loyalty and friendship scattered like an insubstantial dream.
One thing alone, left longing, longing unquenchable, desire forever renewing its self, craving and languishing, save sole redemption: death surcease of being the sleep that knows no waking'.
(Richard Wagner - notes on the 'Opera ‘Tristan und Isolde) .
