It is always astonishing how love can strike. No context is love proof, no convention or commitment impervious.
Even a lifestyle which is perfectly insulated, where the personality is controlled, all the days ordered and all actions in sequence, can to its own dismay find that an unexpected spark has landed; it begins to smoulder until it is finally unquenchable.
The force of Eros always brings disturbance; in the concealed terrain of the human heart Eros remains a light sleeper.
From Beauty; the Invisible Embrace by John O’Donohue
