Quote #10

"Oh," she said, "please be careful; don't kiss your parents on the right cheek when you arrive. Otherwise, you'll forget everything, and I'll remain alone and abandoned here in the field." "How can I forget you?" he said, and he gave her his oath that he would return very soon. (The Drummer.563)

Ah, to be young again, and torn between feelings for your lover and loyalty to your family. Good times.
