Andersen met Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind in , and fell in love with her, but she was not interested in him romantically although the two became friends. According to Carole Rosen, Andersen was inspired to model the icy-hearted Snow Queen on Lind after she rejected him as a suitor. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Hans Christian Andersen.
If its juice is laid on the eye-lids of a sleeping person, it will make that man or woman fall in love with the first living creature they see when they open their eyes. Go and get me this flower and come back before the time it takes for a whale to swim a league. Oberon was pleased with himself. He was going to get his own back on Titania and also get the child. Once he had the juice he would watch out for her and when she was asleep he would drop some of the liquor in her eyes.
Then when she woke up she would pursue the first thing she saw with all the passion of being in love, whether it was a lion, a bear, a wolf, a bull or even a mischievous monkey or a chattering ape. And before he would remove the spell, as he could with another herb, he would make her give the child up to him.
He heard human voices. Who was that? He made himself invisible so that he could overhear their conversation. It was a young man, looking desperate as he pushed branches aside to move forward. But he stopped suddenly and turned to the young woman who was following him and calling his name, Demetrius. The young woman sat down beside him. He looked up and, overwhelmed with fury, pushed her off the log.
Hans Christian Andersen
And stop following me! She got up, rubbing her elbow, then suddenly she pounced on him, sat on his lap and put her arms around his neck, pinning him down. She clung to him for a long time, trying to kiss him, but then he managed to loosen himself, and he pushed her away. She landed on the ground again. He got up and stood over her. Treat me as your spaniel. Spurn me, hit me, neglect me, lose me. Just allow me, unworthy as I am, to follow you. Demetrius shook both his fists in the air with frustration. It will be Apollo running away and Daphne doing the chasing: the dove pursuing the griffin: the meek deer chasing the tiger!
How ridiculous when the coward does the chasing and the brave one flees! He turned and started off, hurrying. Helena took off. She dived, flung her arms around his legs and brought him crashing down. The precious document containing elegant writing and strange drawings is believed to have been written six centuries ago in an unknown or coded language that has never been cracked.
A pair of Canadian codebreakers may have deciphered a year-old book that has been baffling cryptologists for centuries. But, more likely, they probably haven't. In a study published in the journal Transactions of the Association of Computational Linguistics , computing scientists from the University of Alberta used an algorithm to try to decode parts of the Voynich Manuscript , a medieval book written in an undecipherable code with an unknown language. But other scholars are skeptical, and the manuscript remains a document very much shrouded in mystery.
The Voynich Manuscript is likely what cryptologists call a cipher , or a coded pattern of letters. Written in Central Europe in the 15th century, the book is slightly larger than a modern paperback and contains fragile pages of bound vellum, or script-ready animal skin. It doesn't include an index but likely had foldouts that have long since gone missing. There are gaps in the page numbers and evidence that it could have been rebound at some point, so the order of the pages today may be different than they were when the book was published.

An elegant, looping script of 25 to 30 characters runs from left to right in short paragraphs down the pages, interspersed with detailed illustrations. The renderings show doodles of castles and dragons along with diagrams of plants, planets, naked figures, and astronomical symbols, all detailed in green, brown, yellow, blue, and red ink.
One particularly curious passage shows dozens of naked women bathing in pools of interconnected green liquid. It's named for Wilfrid Michael Voynich, the Polish book dealer who purchased it from a Jesuit library in Italy in He tried to interest people in translating it, but alas, none have succeeded. Based on the illustrations, scholars believe the book is divided into six sections: herbal, astronomical, biological, cosmological, pharmaceutical, and recipes.
It's possible the manuscript is of magical or scientific nature. Historical records show the text has fallen into the hands of alchemists and emperors alike. In the late 16th century, a German emperor purchased the manuscript from an English astrologer for Venetian ducats, thinking it was a work of medieval friar Roger Bacon.
From there, it eventually traded hands to a Bohemian pharmacist. The study authors write that the Voynich Manuscript is "the most challenging type of a decipherment problem," since we don't know its secret code but—perhaps more importantly—don't know what language it's in, either.
