you say that you would die for love, but you know nothing of dying and you know nothing of love.

If, being a god, Love has the divine power of the
gods, how could a lesser being reject and refuse it?
But if it is a disease of human origin and a fault of the
soul, it should not be blamed as a sin, but regarded as
an affliction. For she came, as she did come, caught in
the net of Fate, not by the plans of the mind, and by
the constraints of love, not by the device of art.
