Love, I advise, and I speak from experience on that subject, is fragile as rotting silks and will dissolve, disintegrate when infidelities, jealousy, deceit, betrayals, impotence infect it. The heart is not to be trusted as it is brainless and mistakes lust for love while the loins mistake love for lust. Love is a watery foundation on which to build one’s life. Love is violent too, be warned of its treachery. Men and women murder for love, the clash of bodies, hearts and souls, only leave the ashes of defeat at the end when one is vanquished and abandoned on the battlefield of the bed.
