Love Calls Us to the Things of This World Love Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (Line)
The soul descends once more in bitter love (26)
The soul has to make sacrifices for the human, and it's a little resentful of this. But as we read on we see that the soul becomes less upset about it.
To accept the waking body, saying now (27)
Here the soul accepts the body out of love and forgives the body for its human weakness, which is good because otherwise we'd probably be stuck in bed all day.
