"Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering." ( Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept)
And in the same book:
"In real life love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire."
I love this Coelho´s book. It really helped me but this two quotes are some kind of contradiction for me...
