“And I’m not saying love will make you happy—above all, I’m not saying that. If anything I tend to believe that it will make you unhappy; either immediately unhappy, as you are impaled by incompatibility; or unhappy later, when the woodworm has quietly been gnawing away for years and the bishop’s throne collapses. But you can believe this and still insist that love is our only hope.”

Julian Barnes, A History of the World in 10-1/2 Chapters

(Best line of that piece…”impaled by incompatibility…” Such a visual! Definite mark of an Englishman. They leave nothing to interpretation. Bahahaha!)
