The Love of Angels

History of a Kiss

It is so true that a woman may be in love with a woman, and a man with a man. It is pleasant to be sure of it, because it is undoubtedly the same love that we shall feel when we are angels, when we ascend to the only fit place for the Mignons, where sie fragen nicht nach Mann und Weib [“they do not ask about man or woman”].

Margaret Fuller
American critic/social reformer, 1810-1850
