There's no sense of loving someone you can only wake up to by chance.
I say I'm in love with her. What does that mean?
It means I review my future and my past in the light of this feeling. It is as thought I wrote in a foreign language that I am suddenly able to read. Wordlessly, she explains me to myself. Like genius, she is ignorant of what she does.
