Some sentimental deceptions may be feared for this year. They'll be due not so much to human inconstancy as to a lack of imagination on the part of the Dog. Now everybody knows that routine and pedestrianism are the worst enemies of love!
It's to incite us to get out of the rut and to look for some fantasy in love that an Arab proverb tells us: "In order to love a living person well, one must love him as if he were to die tomorrow." The Dog must also cultivate tolerance, this supreme virtue capable of reviving extinct or dying sentimental fires.
