QU'EST-CE-QUE L'AMOUR ?
Je soumets ici aux bloggers une citation tout à fait fascinante de P.B. Shelley, parue dans "A defence of poetry" :
"Thou demandest what is love ? It is that powerful attraction towards all that we conceive, or fear, or hope beyond ourselves, when we find within our own thought the chasm of an insufficient void, and seek to awaken in all things that are a community with what we experience within ourselves. If we reason, we would be understood; if we imagine, we would that the airy children of our brain were born within another's; if we feel, we would that another's nerves should vibrate to our own, that the beams of their eyes should kindle and mix and melt into our own, that lips of motionless ice should not reply, to lips quivering and burning with the heart's best blood. This is love. This is the bond and sanction which connects not only man with man, but with everything that exists."
