THE SYMPOSIUM is one of the most influential dialogues of Plato. Literally in Greek, symposium means dinner party, and THE SYMPOSIUM is a dinner party at the house of the tragic poet Agathon. At the party, the guests decide to make speeches to the god Love. However in the introduction, you will find that Christopher Gill had some trouble translating Eros. Eros in Greek myths is the goddess Aphrodite's little helper, Latinized as Cupid. However these intellectuals discuss about the nature of Eros and how it extends to every form of life. The Symposium is truly an important work and should be read by anyone who wants to familiarize themselves with Plato.

She walked up to him. A delicate blue with golden horns and silver eyes. The eyes seemed to posses much knowledge. Except.... they looked exactly like Mira's.

Back off before I put you somewhere you don't want to be, like in the hospital, or a roadside ditch, bro ;)
