“Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within. I use the word "love" here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace--not in the ... sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth." James Baldwin, "Down at the Cross: Letter from a Region in My Mind" in The Fire Next Time
