Kokoro

“You were mocking that couple just now. I think that mockery contained unhappiness at wanting love but not finding it.”
“Is that how it sounded to you?”
“It is. A man who knows the satisfactions of love would speak of them more warmly. But, you know…love is also a sin. Do you understand?”
Astonished, I made no reply

from Soseki Natsume “Kokoro (Translated by Meredith McKinney)”
