"Love's pleasure lasts but a moment;
Love's sorrow lasts all through life"

I've been trying for so long but i can never get it right :s

"Love's pleasure lasts but a moment;
Love's sorrow lasts all through life"
Amoris voluptas momentum;
tristitia illius aetatem perfert.


Well, that's one way to say it ;)
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae
