    “Passion” comes from the Latin for “to suffer.” Like when we feel “compassion,” we suffer with someone else. Christ suffered for us. I wonder how the word passion got wrapped up in romantic love?

    Deep passion is more than emotion, even when it’s associated with romantic love. We’ve just denigrated the meaning of the word.
    What do you suppose the French mean by ‘la petite morte’?
