Love compares its way to religion,
Religion compares its way to love.
Religion does not save a person, but a people;
Your religion is always theirs, not yours.
None of the things which arouse pity
Should be the goal, but rather, those things
Arousing pity should be escaped and surpassed.
Love involves partiality to an extreme degree,
Or it is not love, but there’s nothing partial about love;
You either love, or you don’t, and its completeness
Defines its love, and by comparison, nothing else is,
For you, and everything is, for you in love with them.
