„I know love is eternal, so also are folly, lies and roses.“

—  Alice Borchardt, book The Silver Wolf

In this world our hopes for the best are so often disappointed
Love is eternal. That is its terror and its final beauty. Love never ends. The joy may go out of it, and in time even the pain may end. But it lingers like a living thing and follows you every moment of your life.
The Silver Wolf

„pleasure wouldn’t exist without the sharp bite of pain. Even the brief flash of orgasm is too intense to be absolutely pleasurable“

—  Alice Borchardt, book The Silver Wolf

have you ever seen anyone who could take anything from me against my will, ever, anywhere, anytime?
The Silver Wolf

„I saw he was now and always would be his own man“

—  Alice Borchardt, book The Dragon Queen
