Hi everybody and welcome to a new Quote It Wednesday!
I’m kind of cheating a little bit with this week’s quote, since I have not actually read Anna Karenina myself yet. Nor have I seen the movie (though I definitely intend to). But I found this quote in another book, namely Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee.
Since that is a story about a romantic asexual character, I thought this quote was really nice and fitting. And yes, I think society in general definitely needs to learn that there are different kinds of love, and there is not one right love. There is eros, sexual love, but also agape, unconditional love. There is philia, friendship which is also love. And many more kinds of love. Love is not limited to any kind of sexuality. Love can definitely even be inherently asexual. Love is love and love is unlimited.
