About This Quote
And yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays. This is a fun little quote, but it is also quite true. Reason and love are still popular topics in our society, but they are not as popular as they used to be. When reading, most people would think about people who are wise or compassionate or flattering or flattering, but rarely would you think about someone who is reasonable or loving without a second thought.
That is because these qualities are associated with old ideas of respectability that are no longer current. Advice columnists give advice on how to be loving or reasonable without really saying anything about love or reason. The best thing that came out of this is that common sense has again become valued in our culture and we can once again value reason and love without falling into old ideas of respectability.
