I do not love you; the former dreamOf passions and torments has passed by;But your image in my soulIs still alive, although it is powerless;Although I abandon myself to other dreams,I still cannot forget it;So an abandoned temple is still a temple,A dethroned idol — still a god!
Our torments also may in length of time Become our elements, these piercing fires As soft as now severe, our temper changed Into their temper.john milton

That daily the night falls; that over stresses and torments, cares and sorrows the blessing of sleep unfolds, stilling and quenching them; that every anew this draught of refreshment and lethe is offered to our parching lips, ever after the battle this mildness laves our shaking limbs, that from it, purified from sweat and dust and blood, strengthened, renewed, rejuvenated, almost innocent once more, almost with pristine courage and zeal we may go forth again these I hold to be the benignest, the most moving of all the great facts of life.thomas mann
Love's torments made me seek the chase; Rifle in hand, I roam'd apace. Down from the tree, with hollow scoff, The raven cried: "Head-off! head off!"Heinrich Heine

Then Jove shall learn what all his sulphurous bolts, Soul-piercing torments, earthquakes, fiery plagues, Disease, and loathsome, black deformity, And all confounding shame, shall ne'er persuade My voice to utter.hartley coleridge
