These violent delights have violent ends,
And in their triumph die like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume.

Why is parting inevitable? Why are we doomed to vanish in the end? Swiss philosopher Karl Hilty (1833-1909) warned that love is

"happiness that penetrates the depths of the heart, but it can also become an all-destroying unhappiness .... The deeper and purer the emotion of one given over completely to the happiness of love, the more certain that person is to become completely miserable, unless he can escape such a bitter experience through death."

In The Sorrows of Young Werther, Goethe laments,

Aizo ichinyo

There is a word "Aizo ichinyo" in Buddhism.

If your love is getting stronger and stronger, your hatred and anger will grow stronger as well when you are betrayed.

Ones mind is easy to be changed.

In the wedding ceremony, lovers pledge unswerving devotion "till death do us part." Whether death comes early or late, for any who love the one who departs, it is always too soon.

In this world where everything perishes, imperishable happiness is above all else our common desire, and its attainment is our true meaning of life.

The imperishable happiness is taught in Buddhism.
