Thomas Mann Quote

Love stands opposed to death. It is love, not reason, that is stronger than death. Only love, not reason, gives kind thoughts.


Ch. 6; variant translation: It is love, not reason, that is stronger than death. Only love, not reason, gives sweet thoughts. And from love and sweetness alone can form come: form and civilization. - The Magic Mountain (1924)
