I think a comment of mine is quoted out of context here.  Only I have
erased the original post so I can't go back and look at it. Of course
I could look at the archives but I do not think it is that important?

I probably was trying to point out that  because something is possible

Yes - at last - You. I Choose you. Out of all the world,
out of all the seeking, I have found you, young sister of
my heart! You are mine and I am yours - and never again
