I'm trying to constellate these two observations by Stendhal, on love, without deranging my congitive faculties (this is the Stendhal who wrote: L'amour a toujours été pour moi la plus grande des affaires ou plutôt la seule)

'Ce qui est fort beau est nécessairement toujours vrai' ('What is really beautiful must always be true', Armance)

'Les vraies passions sont égoïstes' ('True passions are selfish', Le Rouge et le Noir).

On the other hand, the fact that I don't personally like where the trail of signification leads doesn't mean that it's a false trail ...
