Quote #10

"No suffering is so heavy that true love cannot lighten it." (Godfather's Picture Book.98)

This line is written about a king's daughter who is exiled with her husband. The basic idea is that since they're together, life can't be all that bad. Our reaction: yes and no. Sure, misery loves company, and being able to share your sorrow with someone makes it suck less. But would having a loved one with you lighten a truly terrible situation? Ehhhhh.
