Plato quote

by Noviny BC (follow)
A man of words
P268. To be in love with a person is to see reflected in that person all the values we most idealize. This is how it comes to be the case that, in the loverís special sight, the one who is loved is bathed in a radiance of significance that sets him or her apart from all other things that exist. Of course, such an incomparable radiance is a delusion, but it is a delusion inseparable from love and loveís desire to want all good to come to the one we love.

What a bleak view on love. Can't we just love people for who they are?
I don't know where this quote is from, but it's not from Plato.
