The Intellectual

The intellectual is always showing off;
the lover is always getting lost.

The intellectual runs away, afraid of drowning;
the whole business of love is to drown in the sea.

Intellectuals plan their repose;
lovers are ashamed to rest.

The lover is always alone,
even surrounded with people;

like water and oil, he remains apart.
The man who goes to the trouble of giving advice to a lover gets
nothing.

He’s mocked by passion.
