Sunday Commonplace Entry
This weeks entry comes from A Coin in Nine Hands by Marguerite Yourcenar.
Love can't be bought. Women who sell themselves to men, after all, only rent themselves out; but dreams can be bought; these intangible goods are sold in many forms. The little money Paolo Farina gave Lina each week was used to create for him a welcome illusion; that is to say, perhaps the only thing in the world that does not deceive.
