c.s. lewis on love

“Love may, indeed, love the beloved 
when her beauty is lost: 
but not because it is lost. 
Love may forgive all infirmities 
and love still in spite of them: 
but Love cannot cease to will their removal. 
Love is more sensitive than hatred itself 
to every blemish in the beloved… 
Of all powers he forgives most, 
but he condones least: 
he is pleased with little, but demands all.” 

-C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
