Rome was the pulsing heart of the world."

Today's Quote

–Recuerdas que más te dije aquella vez en el recibidor, –dijo. – Quiero que seas feliz y quiero que él sea feliz. Sin embargo, cuando camines por ese pasillo para encontrarlo y unirse para siempre, romperás en fragmentos mi corazón. Tessa. Daría mi vida por cualquiera de los dos, daría mi vida por su felicidad, pensé que tal vez cuando me dijiste que no me amabas, mis sentimientos se irían y desaparecerían pero no lo hicieron. Crecen cada día más, te amo con una mayor desesperación en este momento de lo que te había amado antes, y en una hora te amaré más que ahora. Sé que es injusto decirte esto, lo sé, cuando no puedes hacer nada al respecto."
Author: Cassandra Clare
