agape, phileio, eros

Diotima persuades Socrates that Love is not a god at all since Love, after all, is always in a state of wanting or desiring. Rather than a god, Love is in the middle ground between man and god, spanning the distance and bringing them close… As Diotima explains, we seek immortality in any way we can.

This is surprisingly poetic. I love Philo, and thanks to Socrates, I have something to write about!
