Finding the source of an unfortunately pertinent quote.

Trying to remember the text and source of a quote I half-remember.

There is a quote I came across a while ago, which I am sure I am misremembering to some extent. It was something along the lines of:
"The most tragic part of all relationships is that two people, who have their own singular views of the world and each other, will never love each other the same way" (or equally, or something). I'm mangling the structure thoroughly, but that's the gist of it. Anyone have any idea on the original speaker and text?

Best answer: The Bridge of San Luis Rey?

"...even in the most perfect love one person loves less profoundly than the other. There may be two equally good, equally gifted, equally beautiful, but there can never be two that love one another equally well."

Response by poster: Winner in one! Thanks, that had been bugging me for the last week or so.
