Of Art and Love

portrait-of-stendhal-by-o-001

And remember that a soul made for love can never be satisfied with any other kind of happiness. After its first taste of the much-vaunted pleasures of the world, it finds them intolerably dull, and though it often believes itself fond of Art and the sublimities of Nature, these merely lead the soul back to love, and more intensely than before, if that be possible. The soul soon realises that it is being reminded of a happiness it has forsworn. – Stendhal, De l’Amour
