[ MORPHEUS ]
It is sometimes a mistake to climb;
it is always a mistake never even to make the attempt.
If you do not climb, you will not fall.
This is true.
But is it that bad to fail, that hard to fall?
Sometimes you wake, and sometimes, yes, you die.
But there is a third alternative.
[ TODD ]
And sometimes, when you fall, you learn to fly.
[ Neil Gaiman | The Sandman | Fables and Reflections ]
The first flush of youth was upon you when our eyes first met
And I knew that to you and into your life I had to get
I felt light-headed at the touch of this stranger’s hand
An assault my defenses systematically fail to withstand
‘Cause you came at a time
When the pursuit of one true love in which to fall
Was the be-all and end-all
Love is only a feeling
When I’m in your arms I start believing
(It’s here to stay)
But love is only a feeling
