Extract from John Berger

Soon after we can see, we are aware that we can also be seen. The eye of the other combines with our own eye to make it fully credible that we are part of the visible world…

When in love, the sigh of the beloved has a completeness which no words and no embrace can match: a completeness which only the act of making love can temporarily accommodate.
