Love in faith to a lover

“…and the simple truth is that though so much is made of the woman’s beauty in love stories, passion does not require it. Plato’s idea that lovers were originally one person, the two parts having become separated and desiring to be joined is as good an explanation as any for what cannot, in  (William Maxwell, on the nature of love affairs,                               the mind of the outsider,           So Long See You Tomorrow, 1980)                      ever be convincingly accounted for.”
