As old Will Shakespeare said, “Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.” (MND I.1.240-241, just to prove I really did earn my PhD in Liberal Arts, as well as that I’m a smartarse.) Although said by spiteful Helena, who thinks the Demetrius should love her for her fealty rather than Hermia for her beauty, the truth of the line still comes through. As Lightfoot says, “We see what we look for.” Heading into this new year, let’s look with kinder eyes. A final quote, from Keats: ” ‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty,’ – that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
