Otho Cushing es el ilustrador de esta portada retrofuturista, publicada por LIFE en 1914. Cushing fue un ilustrador popular que dibujó para LIFE durante muchos años, aunque poco se sabe de él. El estilo y la temática gay de sus trazos han dado cabida a la idea de que la familia o la sociedad de la época vieron algo que ocultar y pocos datos se tienen de su vida, aunque se puede ver su obra en varias ilustraciones y acuarelas.

“It’s not love that hurts. It’s the infatuation with what we so blindly accept as love that hurts. True love should never have to hurt.”
“Love is always a good thing, no matter how much it hurts. Even after it’s over, even through the pain, anyone who has ever really loved will tell you that they never regretted a second of it, no matter how much it hurt in the end. And if you tell me differently, I will tell you that you were not truly in love.”
