If we view love only from a high moralistic or hygienic peak, we will overlook its soul settling in the valleys. When we reflect on the tragedies of our own loves, when we slowly find our way through their miseries, we are initiated into the mysterious ways of the soul. Loves is the means of entry and our guide. Love keeps us on the labyrinthine path. (Moore, pp 85)
