  • What if true love isn't reciprocated? I mean, if I feel true love for someone because I feel a connection (such as with Neo 5 years ago), but they don't feel it, then what is it called? Would it be true obsession on my part?

    Yes. True Obsession, indeed. I believe there's a thin line between true love and obsession. But, I really did feel a soulful connection. He didn't feel anything, obviously.

    Very insightful quote, RB - as always! :) It's just I'm having a difficult time with the word "love" right now. I'm a crumbling mess, actually :\

  • Animus humanus amor non est,
    sed ab ipso amor procedit, et
    idea seipso non diligit, sed amore
                      qui seipso procedit.

    ["The human soul is not love, but love flows from it, and it delights not in the idea of itself but in the love which flows from it."]
