umberto eco who died today

what is love? There is noth­ing in the world, nei­ther man nor dev­il nor any thing, that i hold as sus­pect as love, for it pen­e­trates the soul more than any oth­er thing. noth­ing exists that so fills and binds the heart as love does. there­fore, unless you have those weapons that sub­due it, the soul plunges through love into an immense abyss.”

from  the name of the rose
