“I myself think it would be funny, if not for the love I have for you, or if I had the time to think of anything else besides the pain you seem to take pleasure in giving me, a pain I do not deserve, unless for loving you so much.”

Letter to Ophélia Queiroz, the only known girlfriend of Fernando Pessoa. Written by the poet in March 1st, 1920.
