The Brothers Karamazov (Translated by Constance Garnett) - Fyodor Dostoevsky

This quote was added by user570049
I am sorry I can say nothing more consoling to you, for love in action is a harsh and dreadful thing compared with love in dreams. Love in dreams is greedy for immediate action, rapidly performed and in the sight of all. Men will even give their lives if only the ordeal does not last long but is soon over, with all looking on and applauding as though on the stage. But active love is labor and fortitude, and for some people too, perhaps, a complete science.

Dostoevsky does it again, debunking all our happily ever afters. Only 1880s kids would get it!
