[I Had Cooperated. I Could Not Have Refused. I Was Smitten With Her, Half In Love But Also Afraid, Because In My Life (and She Seemed To Know This) I Had Not Loved Anyone Without Having Been Wounded. Love Was Power And Possession, Love Caused Pain: You Were Never More Exposed Than When You Were In Love, Never More Wounded; Possession Was An Enslavement, Something Stifling.]

Marcello Malpighi Quotes

"Nature, ... in order to carry out the marvelous operations [that occur] in animals and plants has been pleased to construct their organized bodies with a very large number of machines, which are of necessity made up of extremely minute parts so shaped and situated as to form a marvelous organ, the structure and composition of which are usually invisible to the naked eye without the aid of a microscope. ... Just as Nature deserves praise and admiration for making machines so small, so too the physician who observes them to the best of his ability is worthy of praise, not blame, for he must also correct and repair these machines as well as he can every time they get out of order."
