fyodor dostoevsky on love

"For the first moment she was terribly frightened, 
and her whole face went numb. 
She jumped and looked at him, trembling. 
But all at once, in that same moment, 
she understood everything. 
Infinite happiness lit up in her eyes; 
she understood, 
and for her there was no longer any doubt 
that he loved her, loved her infinitely, 
and that at last the moment had come. . . 
There already shown the dawn of a renewed future, 
of a complete resurrection into a new life. 
They were resurrected by love; 
the heart of each held infinite sources of life 
for the heart of the other."

-Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment
