Love In A Bottle

"I don't know if now, having lived and died the life of a man, I can write about little-boy love, but remembering it now, it seems the cleanest pain I've known. Love without desire, or conditions, or limits---a pure and radiant glow int he heart that could make me giddy and sad and glorious all at once. Where did it go? Why, in all their experiments, did the Magi never try to capture that purity in a bottle? Perhaps they couldn't. Perhaps it is lost to us when we become sexual creatures, and no magic can bring it back. Perhaps I only remember it because I spent so long trying to understand the love that [Jesus] felt for everyone."- Biff from the Book LAMB by Christopher Moore
