Only Lovers Left Alive

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
     If this be error and upon me proved,
     I never writ, nor no man ever loved."

Sonnet CXVI - Shakespeare


293   I will tell you why; so shall my anticipation prevent 
294   your discovery, and your secrecy to the king and 
295   queen moult no feather. I have of late—but wherefore 
296   I know not—lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of 
297   exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily with my 
298   disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to 
299   me a sterile promontory, this most excellent canopy, 
300   the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, 
301   this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, 
302   it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent 
303   congregation of vapors. What a piece of work is a man! 
304   How noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, 
305   in form and moving how express and admirable, 
306   in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like 
307   a god! The beauty of the world, the paragon of animals! 
308   And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man 
309   delights not me—no, nor woman neither, though by 
310   your smiling you seem to say so."

Adam: Eve, you're ruthless. You're brutal.
Eve: I'm a survivor, baby.

What if... The eternity got boring?
What if... You have seen all before?
Do you still want to live it?
Or are you contemplating suicide?
