On love

I am a huge fan of the movie A Room with a View. I just read the novel for the first time. Forster's writing is as wonderful as ever:

"But Lucy had developed since spring. That is to say, she was now better able to stifle the emotions of which the conventions and the world disapprove... Love felt and returned, love which our bodies exact and our hearts have transfigured, love which is the most real thing we shall ever meet, reappeared now as the world's enemy and she must stifle it."
