An unusual presentation of love as being woven from threads of fulfillment.  This is how I always thought of it, without having found the words, and how I have found it to be.  Saint-Exupery’s love-fabric also echoes a simile by Mary Webb.  

This is the veritable love – a web woven of strands in which we are fulfilled.
