Love, According to Voltaire

“Alas!” said the other, “it was love; love, the comfort of the human species, the preserver of the universe, the soul of all sensible beings, love, tender love.”

“Alas!” said Candide, “I know this love, that sovereign of hearts, that soul of our souls; yet it never cost me more than a kiss and twenty kicks on the backside. How could this beautiful cause produce in you an effect so abominable?”

Candide, Voltaire

Love is my salvation. It’s honestly the reason I’m still standing. The love of my children, husband, reading, and so many other aspects keep my feet on the ground, insisting on keeping me around longer.
