Sex -- the great inequality, the great miscalculator, the great Irritator.

Sex can no longer be the germ, the seed of fiction. Sex is an episode, most properly conveyed in an episodic manner, quickly, often ironically. It is a bursting forth of only one of the cells in the body of the omnipotent I, the one who hopes by concentration of tone and voice to utter the sound of reality.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
Nuptial love makes mankind; friendly love perfects it; but wanton love corrupts and debases it.
