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.
