George Condo (American, b. 1957), Untitled, 1987. Oil on canvas, 48 x 48 in.
[S]uppose youre in love and someones mistreating (mal aimé) you, you dont say, “Hey, you cant hurt me this way, I care!” you just let all the different bodies fall where they may, and they always do flay after a few months. But thats not why you fell in love in the first place, just to hang onto life, so you have to take your chances and try to avoid being logical. Pain always produces logic, which is very bad for you.
