    Default pls help for a sentence

    hi everyone!

    I couldn't understand what is meant by the following sentence:

    There is more to him than reason. I have a fierce affection for him despite what you may hear." (talking about an idiot child)

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Reason (= logic, intelligence, sanity, ...) is not everything. This vegetable has no reason, but offers something beyond this. The speaker is possibly thinking of love, affection, warmth, drooling, etc.

    Thank you. I was in doubt about it due to the structure of the sentence. It is clear now.

    I've just come across another sentence which is confusing:
    “I pull her to me to feel the green hardness of her.” This is from a romantic scene but what can this green hardness of her be? Do you have any idea?

    Thanks again.
