Natsume Soseki – KOKORO

Pentru că acum citesc o carte din care îmi vine să redau pagini întregi, extrag doar cel mai recent fragment care mi-a rămas în suflet.

But even now I believe – and I believe it very strongly – that true love is not so far removed from religious faith. Whenever I saw Ojosan’s face, I felt that I had myself become beautiful. Whenever I thought of her, I felt a new sense of dignity welling up inside me. If this incomprehensible thing that we call love can either bring out the sacred in man or, in its lower form, merely excite one’s bodily passions, then surely my love was of the highest kind.
