Sight, Silence and Truth

«Their eyes met, and for the first time in years they were actually not indifferent to each other’s presence. 
                                              By Raquel R. in Short Story number 9

« There is such a thing as looking through a person's eyes into the heart, and learning more of the height, and breadth, and depth of another's soul in one hour than it might take you a lifetime to discover, if he or she were not disposed to reveal it, or if you had not the sense to understand it.»
                                                                                                Anne Brontë

Virtues and failings

«The synchronization and spontaneity of that gesture brought back to both unsuspicious feelings that had been laying beneath years of misunderstandings, regrets and deceptions.» 
                                                   By Raquel R. in Short Story number 9 

«Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more.»
                                                                                                            Nikola Tesla

«The person I am tonight»

«It was inexplicable to her how the distance between them could have grown to the point of almost transforming them into two strangers.» 
                                                   By Raquel R. in Short Story number 9 

« I don’t ask you to love me always like this, but I ask you to remember. Somewhere inside me there’ll always be the person I am tonight.»
                                                                                                 F. Scott Fitzgerald

«From the eye to the heart»

«It was one of those unpredictable moments, when a simple gesture or an unexpected attitude from someone we know, or we think we know, can suddenly change, in a few seconds, years of pre-defined opinions or even feelings that we used to experience about that person.» 
                                                  By Raquel R. in Short Story number 9  
«There is a road from the eye to the heart that does not go through the intellect.» 
                                                                                           G.K. Chesterton

Like water

«The perplexity of that moment, caught her off guard and immediately touched a chord inside her, waking her up from the emotional lethargy she had been in.» 
                                                   By Raquel R. in Short Story number 9

«There are moments in life, when the heart is so full of emotion That if by chance it be shaken, or into its depths like a pebble Drops some careless word, it overflows, and its secret, Spilt on the ground like water, can never be gathered together.»
                                                                           Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
