[excerpt from letter]: “If you won’t agree [to our marriage], I think I’ll break all the windows in the house and drown myself in a bucket.”
“He wants to marry Bramble!”
The King smiled. “Just so.”
“He’s around the twist,” said Azalea. “Breaking all the windows? He’s mad!”
“Ah, no,” said the King. “It’s only madness if you actually do it. If you *want* to break all the windows in the house and drown yourself in a bucket but don’t actually do it, well, that’s love.”

Excellent quote. I agree with the King. Love will make a person think strange thoughts, but only a madman carries them out.
