This question of Love is lodged, immense and obscure, under the depths of human life. It even supports its bases and its lowermost foundations. The Family rests upon Love, and Society upon the family. Hence Love goes before everything. As the manners are, so is the community. Liberty would be but a word if we preserved the habits of slaves. Here we seek the Ideal. The ideal which can be realized today, not that which we must postpone for a better state of society. It is the reform of Love and of the Family which must precede all others, for it alone can render them possible.
