• A lost love. Deny it who will, ridicule it, treat it as mere imagination and sentiment, the thing is and will be; and women do suffer therefrom, in all its infinite varieties: loss by death, by faithlessness or unworthiness, and by mistaken or unrequited affection.

    "A Woman's Thoughts About Women" by Dinah Maria Murlock Craik, (Ch. 10), 1858.
