Emperor Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra Feodorovna, 1899. Nicholas II & Alexandra...' Love, however low it may speak, speaks yet distinctly to the heart, love’s accent is a voice from the light of heaven, love is earnest and joyous, forbearing and vigorous. Death cannot shatter love. Love’s silence is beautiful and sweeter often than words, what love unites, no fate can separate, love will one day unite all the loving ones. ’ Alexandra’s entry in Nicholas II’s diary, November 5, 1894.
