Quotes Containing beloved:
Dr. Louis Levy (Martin Bergmann) at the end of Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989): 'You will notice that what we are aiming at when we fall in-love is a very strange paradox. The paradox consists of the fact that when we fall in-love we are seeking to re-find all or some of the people to whom we were attached as children. On the other hand we ask our beloved to correct all of the wrongs that these early parents or siblings inflicted upon us so that love contains in it the contradiction: the attempt to return to the past and the attempt to undo the past.'
