A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on business, conversation, experience, and love

You ask whether I have ever been in love: fool as I am, I am not such a fool as that. But if one is only to talk from first-hand experience, conversation would be a very poor business. But though I have no personal experience of the things they call love, I have what is better - the experience of Sappho, of Euripides, of Catallus, of Shakespeare, of Spenser, of Austen, of Brontë, of anyone else I have read.

Jack Lewis (1898 - 1963)
