Love Creates Tenderness, Which Survives Passion

The false sages tell us not to marry for love because love doesn't last. It's as if doctors advised against sleep because we wake up afterward. A man who has slept awakens in a better mood. A couple that has known the passion of love has more resources than one born of the marriage of reason. Love creates tenderness, which survives passion.

- Claude Roy
