From Julian Barnes:

July 14, 2016

You put two people together who have not been put together before; and sometimes the world is changed … Together, in that first exaltation, that first roaring sense of uplift, they are greater than their two separate selves. Together, they see further, and they see more clearly. … We live on the flat, on the level, and yet – and so – we aspire. Groundlings, we can sometimes reach as far as the gods. Some soar with art, others with religion; most with love.

– Levels of Life
