"Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one agrees on just what it is."
-- Diane Ackerman (b. 1948), American-born author, writer
"You say that love is nonsense....I tell you it is no such thing. For weeks and months it is a steady physical pain, an ache about the heart, never leaving one, by night or by day; a long strain on one's nerves like toothache or rheumatism, not intolerable at any one instant, but exhausting by its steady drain on the strength."
-- Henry Brooks Adams (1838-1918), American historian, writer
"Some pray to marry the man they love, my prayer will somewhat vary: I humbly pray to heaven above that I love the man I marry."
-- Anouk Aimée (b. 1932), French actor
"Doubt of the reality of love ends by making us doubt everything."
-- Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821-81), Swiss philosopher, poet

Love is a gift that is given to few, those that recieve it should feel blessed. But other than that i feel it is a grossly exagerated emotion, that almost inevitably ends in anguish and frustration. How paradoxical that the ont thing that clais it will make us eternally happy, also can distroy our very essence of joy? Hell even forever doesnt last that long anymore.
