Subjective | Marcel Proust, 1871-1922
George Kotsonis, Leda and the swan, 1978

“No doubt, few people understand either the purely subjective nature of the
phenomenon of love, or how it creates a supplementary person who is quite
different from the one who bears our beloved’s name in the outside world, and
is mostly formed from elements within ourselves. So there are few who see
anything natural in the disproportionate dimensions which we come to perceive
in a person who is not the same as the one they see.”
