Love is an Adventure
Pierre Tielhart de Chardin
Love is an adventure and a conquest.
It survives and develops like the universe itself
only by perpetual discovery.
The only right love is that between couples
whose passion leads them both,
one through the other,
to a higher possession of their being.
Put your faith in the spirit which dwells between the two of you.
You have each offered yourself to the other as a boundless field
of mutually increased sensibility.
You will meet above all by entering into
and constantly sharing
one another’s thoughts,
There alone, as you know,
in spirit, which is arrived through flesh,
you will find no disappointments, no limits.
There alone the skies are ever open for your love;
there alone lies the great road ahead.
