Heinrich Heine

German Poet, Satirist, Journalist and Literary Critic

"You are like a flower."

"You should only attempt to borrow from those who have but few of this world's goods, as their chests are not of iron, and they are, besides, anxious to appear wealthier than they really are."

"You're lovely as a flower, so pure and fair to see; I look at you, and sadness comes stealing over me."
