  • 梦里醉逍遥

    梦里醉逍遥 (愚者暗于成事,知者见于未萌。)

    While Chloe talked, I watched her hands fiddling with the belt of her beige woolen coat and realized that I loved her. I could not avoid the conclusion that, however awkward it was that she rarely finished her sentences, or was somewhat anxious and had not perhaps the best taste in earrings, she was adorable. It was a moment of complete idealization, dependent as much on an inexcusable emotional i...

    Why we fall in love If cynicism and love lie at opposite ends of a spectrum, do we not sometimes fall in love in order to escape the debilitating cynicism to which we are prone? Is there not in every coup de foudre a certain willful exaggeration of the qualities of the beloved, an exaggeration which distracts us from our habitual pessimism and focuses our energies on someone in whom we can beli...

    What does it mean that man is a “social animal”? Only that humans need one another in order to define themselves and achieve self-consciousness in a way that mollusks or earthworms do not. We cannot come to a proper sense of ourselves if there are not others around to show us where we end and others begin. “A man can acquire anything in solitude except a character,” wrote Stendhal, suggesting ...

    梦里醉逍遥 (愚者暗于成事,知者见于未萌。)

    Love reveals its insanity by its refusal to acknowledge the inherent normality of the loved one. Hence the boredom of lovers for those standing on the sidelines. What do they see in the beloved save simply another human being? I had often tried to share my enthusiasm for Chloe with friends, whom in the past I had found much common ground with over films, books, and politics, but who now looked at ...

    梦里醉逍遥 (愚者暗于成事,知者见于未萌。)

    Love is not self-explanatory; it is always interpreted by the culture in which we celebrate our birthday. How did I know that what I felt for Chloe was love without others to prompt me to an answer?

    梦里醉逍遥 (愚者暗于成事,知者见于未萌。)

    It is a sign that two people have stopped loving one another when they are no longer able to spin differences into jokes. Humor lined the walls of irritation between our ideals and the reality: Behind each joke, there was a warning of difference, of disappointment even, but it was a difference that had been defused — and could therefore be passed over without the need for pogrom.

    梦里醉逍遥 (愚者暗于成事,知者见于未萌。)

    When we look at someone from a position of unrequited love and imagine the pleasures that being in heaven with them might bring us, we are prone to overlook one important danger: how soon their attractions might pale if they began to love us back. We fall in love because we long to escape from ourselves with someone as beautiful, intelligent, and witty as we are ugly, stupid, and dull. But what if...   (1回应)

    梦里醉逍遥 (愚者暗于成事,知者见于未萌。)

    More often than not, we achieve our goals by coincidence rather than design, dispiriting news for the seducer, who is imbued with the spirit of positivism and rationalism, believing that with enough careful and almost scientific research, laws for the fall into love can be discovered. Seducers proceed in the hope of finding love hooks to ensnare the beloved -- a certain smile, or opinion, or way o...

    But on the other, there was nothing in her behavior to suggest this was anything but an opportunity for an intelligent discussion on art and architecture. Perhaps all this was simply friendship, a maternal, a sexless bond of a female for a male. Suspended between innocence and collusion, Chloe's every gesture had becoming imbued with maddening significance. Did she know that I desired her? Did she...

    Every fall into love involves the triumph of hope over self-knowledge.
