The history of all hitherto existing relationships
Is the history of struggle.
A series of contradictions,
Antagonistic and passive,
That must be negated
By a society of two.
Each quantitative step that
Leads to rebellion has risks;
Risk of failure,
Alienation from the righteous cause,
Separation from of affairs
Of the heart.
A spectre is haunting humanity –
The spectre of love.
Two things result from this fact:
Love is acknowledged to be itself a power;
It is high time lovers publish
Their views, their aims, their tendencies,
Meet this fantasy of the spectre of love
With a Manifesto of the heart itself.
To this end, lovers of the world
To sketch the following Manifesto,
To be published in passionate, compassionate, heartfelt languages.
