Invented Love
Note from The Dialogue Of Apollodorus by Plato

Parmenides (early 5th century B.C.) in obedience to what he believed to be strict logic, rejected the possibility of all plurality and change, and the line which is here quoted belongs to the fragmentary second part of his poem, in which he appears, in spite of his convictions, to have constructed a cosmogony of more or less traditional type. The context of the line is unknown.
