This world is almost six thousand years old, and in all this time not one man has actually died from love. Troilus may have wanted to die from love, and he's now considered one of the great, tragic love heroes, but, in fact, a Greek with a club beat his brains out. It had nothing to do with love. Leander would have lived many more years if it hadn't been for a particularly hot summer night, when he went swimming in the Hellespont, got a cramp, and drowned. The foolish poets of the time insisted he died for love, but they're lying. All the love stories are lies. Men have died from time to time, and worms have eaten them, but not because of love.
