"Love implies knowledge:
The intellect sets up the goal or target. The will is the bow and the arrow combined directed to that target"
"Just as to speak means to produce a word and to flower means to produce blossoms, so to love is to breathe love, or to sigh or spirate"
"A kiss is a mere sign of love, but it is a giving of one's breath or spirit, which is inseparable from life itself."
