Ori­ginal Credits

It is love who emp­ties us of the spirit of estrange­ment and fills us with the spirit of kin­ship; who makes pos­sible such mutual inter­course as this; who presides over fest­ivals, dances, sac­ri­fices; who bestows good-humour and ban­ishes sur­li­ness; whose gift is the gift of good-will and never of ill-will. He is eas­ily entreated and of great kind­ness; con­tem­plated by the wise, admired by the gods; coveted by men who posses him not, the treas­ure of those who are blessed by his pos­ses­sion; father of dainti­ness, del­ic­acy, volup­tu­ous­ness, all graces, long­ing, and desire; care­ful of the hap­pi­ness of good men, care­less of the fate of the bad; in toil, in fear, in desire, in speech the best pilot, sol­dier, com­rade, saviour; author of order in heaven and earth; love­li­est and best of all lead­ers of song, whom it behoves every man to fol­low singing his praise, and bear­ing his part in that melody where­with he casts a spell over the minds of all gods and all men.
