Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina, 2012
Love, hope, and joy, fair pleasure’s smiling train,
Hate, fear, and grief, the family of pain,
These mixt with art, and to due bounds confin’d,
Make and maintain the balance of the mind:
The lights and shades, whose well accorded strife
Gives all the strength and colour of our life.
Alexander Pope (via itsquoted)
