Love is...

merely madness. -William Shakespeare
an ocean of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses. - Thomas Robert Dewar
the beauty of the soul. -St. Augustine
the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. -Robert Heinlein
all we have, the only way that each can help the other. - Euripides
a better teacher than duty. -Albert Einstien
a friendship set to music. -E. Joseph Cossman
a serious mental disease. - Plato
a tyrant sparing none. - Pierre Corneille
a friendship caught on fire. -Northern Exp.
all you need. -Paul McCartney
being stupid together. -Paul Valery
like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties. -Jules Renard
an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired. - Robert Frost
a conflict between reflexes and reflections. - Mangnu Hirschfield
a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination. -Voltaire
a cunning weaver of fantasies and fables. - Sappho
shown in your deeds, not in your words. -Fr. Jerome Cummings
an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love. -Erich Fromm
a state in which a man sees things most decidedly as they are not. - Friedrich Nietzsche

it's amazing how many famous people have begun sentences with the same two words. there are many more where these came from, but these are my favorite.

can you guess which one is my most favorite?
