we love only the person we can eat *

* and we refrain from eating

What ties this wolf to this lamb, is the fact that it hasn't eaten it.Painful mystery of the gift that returns through reflection: what the wolf loves in the lamb is its own goodness.It's thanks to the lamb that the wolf accedes to the plane of love-the love that gives of itself without hope, without calculation, without response, but that nevertheless gives of itself, seeing itself give of itself.The lover loves the beloved, which is the occasion for generous love.But thereafter-thereafter there is the aftermath.Now the wolf can no longer break away from the lamb, for the lamb retains, for better or worse, traces of the gift.
