We are still romantics at heart by Leonard Bernstein

We are still romantics at heart. The romantics give us back our Moon, for instance, which science has taken away from us and made into just another airport. Secretly we all want the Moon to be what it was before ~ a mysterious, hypnotic light in the sky. We want Love to be mysterious too, as it used to be, and not a set of pyschotheraputic rules for interpersonal relationships. We crave mystery even as we forge ahead toward the solution of one cosmic mystery after another.
Leonard Bernstein
