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

“ ‘And I would contradict anyone who claims that that suspicion is the same as love. Suspicion may come from love, just as ashes come from fire-but like ashes, suspicion stifles the flame.’

‘ I think that nothing brings greater grief either to a man or to a woman,’ said Hircan, ‘than to be suspected of being the opposite of what one really is. And as far as I am concerned there’s nothing else that would be more likely to make me end a friendship.’ “
