'A Symposium in Space' Quote

“Many a person on different worlds has looked up in the sky. Too many have seen the elder Aphrodite’s gleaming ship, hovering in the heavens,” Agathea said. She almost whispered the words against my cheek. “One life giver might see a cluster of stars overhead. Another might see a beautiful, ethereal face. Everyone who sees the ship loses something crucial to their being. They stop smiling. They no longer bother to treat anyone kindly. They lose affection for everyone and everything. This is because Aphrodite’s ship has carried off their best parts.”
