[The poem Love at First Sight, by Wislawa Szymborska] urges us to ask the question, not to come up with answers. It invites us to allow the possibility that our lives were never entirely in our hands, if indeed at all. Of all things, love is the greatest mystery. Better, then, not to hold fast to certainties about where it came from or where it might lead; to fixed ideas about how vulnerable or protected we may be in the face of love's arrows.
