Love Calls Us to the Things of This World

Love Calls Us to the Things of This World Love Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (Line)
Let there be clean linen for the backs of thieves;
Let lovers go fresh and clean to be undone, (30-31)
See, here's the thing. Why else would the soul possibly return to the body for if not love? There's really no other reason. The soul loves thieves, despite their thievery. If the soul didn't love those thieves, then we bet the soul would go on hanging out with the angels. Only love can bring it back.
