YOUNG WOMAN: Why do we have to stop loving people?
OLD MAN: I forget.
THE CHORUS: You are an animal with a mind touched by gods.
YOUNG WOMAN: All of us are.
THE CHORUS: If they don’t love you back, if they don’t love themselves, if they’re not the idol you’ve carved them to be: you are alone.
YOUNG WOMAN: Teach me to love and not mind.
THE CHORUS: You are alone.
OLD MAN: I love you.
THE CHORUS: Let it go, young woman. Let him try.
