There Are Times that We Cannot Seek the Purpose of Things Discussion

explain the quote/concept in your own words and how it relates to the key concept logos


In this world second thoughts, it seems, are best.

Your case is not so extraordinary,

beyond thought or reason.

The Goddess in her anger

has smitten you, and you are in love. What wonder

Is this . . . ?

The tide of love,

At its full surge, is not withstandable . . .

He who has read the writings of the ancients

And has lived much in books, he knows

That Zeus once loved the lovely Semele . . .

Yet all these dwell in heaven

They are content, I am sure, to be subdued

By the stroke of love . . .

We should not in the conduct of our lives be too exacting.
