❝ Apart from you there is no joy; away from you, the world is a desert where I am alone and cannot open my heart. You have taken more than my soul; you are the one thought of my life. When I am tired of the worry of work, when I feel the outcome, when men annoy me, when I am ready to curse being alive, I put my hand on my heart; your portrait hangs there, I look at it, and love brings me perfect happiness, and all is smiling except the time I must spend away from my mistress. ❞
—   Napoleon to Josephine   —

Oh God, why must one be parted from one whom one so loves!”

Anita Ekberg by Peter Basch
