Ebudlelwaneni obunjalo, alukho uthando, kukhona isivumelwano kuphela; akukho ukuthanda nokuthandwa, ukuphana nomusa kuphela. Akukho ukuqonda, kuphela ukuthukuthela okucindezelwe nenkohliso. Akukho ukuzwana, kuphela kunegebe elingenakuvalwa. Uma izinto sezifika lapha, ubani ongasihlehlisa lesi simo esiqhubekayo? Futhi bangaki abantu abakwazi ukuqonda ngempela ukuthi lobu budlelwano busesimweni esibucayi futhi esiqeda ithemba?
