^^I quoted the single most heart-rending line from what is perhaps the most depressing book in the English language, one of the Victorians.

Here's a couple more:

"Their lives were ruined, he thought; ruined by the fundamental error of their matrimonial union: that of having based a permanent contract on a temporary feeling which had no necessary connection with affinities that alone render a lifelong comradeship tolerable."

And

"Do not do an immoral thing for moral reasons!"
