Passage of the Day: Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) “The Heptameron”

“What I mean Hircan is this. If love is based on a woman’s, charm and favours, and if our aim is merely pleasure, ambition or profit, then such a love can never last. For if the whole foundation on which our love is based should collapse then love will fly from us and there will be no love left in us. But I am utterly convinced that if a man loves with no other aim, no other desire, than to love truly, he will abandon his soul to death rather than allow his love to abandon his heart.”
