Jacki Lyden quotes from 19th century orator Robert Ingersoll: "Love is the magician, the enchanter that changes worthless things to joy … It is the perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts; but with it, earth is heaven, and we are gods."
