“Don’t fall in love with a woman who reads, a woman who feels intensely, a woman who writes…

Don’t fall in love with an educated, magical, delirious, or crazy woman. Don’t fall in love with a woman who thinks, who understands what she knows and also knows how to fly; a woman sure of herself.

Don’t fall in love with a woman who laughs or cries while making love, that knows how to turn into spirit her flesh; let alone one that loves poetry (those are the most dangerous), or one that spends half an hour contemplating a painting and doesn’t know how to live without music.

Don’t fall in love with a woman interested in politics, is rebellious, and feels an immense horror from injustices. One that doesn’t like TV at all. Nor a woman who is beautiful, regardless of the features of her face or her body.

Don’t fall in love with an intense, playful, lucid, and irreverent woman. You don’t want to fall in love with a woman like that, because when you fall in love with a woman like that, whether she stays with you or not, whether she loves you or not, from a woman like that you never recover…”
