The Attachment Of Free Molecules

“You’re an educated man: do you know what smell is?”

“A sense.”

“More than that. Smell is the essence, the attachment of free molecules of the thing itself. If we could really see each other, we would see clouds of loose molecules and atoms. We’re dripping with them. Every person you meet, you exchange some with. That’s why lovers reek of each other, because they’ve joined so completely that they’re virtually the same person.”

—Martin Cruz Smith, Wolves Eat Dogs
