WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED LOVE?

Blogs are resplendent in opinions, often "over the top."  Blogs are usually political, social, economic, or spiritual expressions.  I have chosen to comment about "love."  Is that a bridge too far?  Love comes in so many forms, textures, styles, depths, etc.  Love is not gender-specific or even species-specific.  People have love for neighbors, pets, friends, partners, spouses, divinities, and even inanimate objects.  So, from an open and free place, I share with you some quotes about love.  Who knows, these may even enhance your love?

"Love doesn't make the world go 'round.  Love is what makes the ride worthwhile." -Franklin P. Jones

"If Jack's in love, he's no judge of Jill's beauty." -Benjamin Franklin

"He gave her a look you could have poured on a waffle." -Ring Lardner

"To love is to admire with the heart; to admire is to love with the mind." -Theophile Gautier

"Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habitation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old." -John Ciardi

"Many a man has fallen in love with a girl in a light so dim he would not have chosen a suit by it." -Maurice Chevalier

"Let there be spaces in your Togetherness." -Kahlil Gibran

"Only little boys and old men sneer at love." -Louis Auchincloss

"Platonic love is love from the neck up." -Thyra Samter Winslow

"People who are sensible about love are incapable of it." -Douglas Yates

"Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction."  -Antoine de Saint Exupery

"Religion has done love a great service by making it a sin." -Anatole France

"The only abnormality is the incapacity to love." -Anais Nin

"Take away love and our earth is a tomb." -Robert Browning

"And yet, a single night of universal love could save everything." -Roland Giguere

"No woman ever falls in love with a man unless she has a better opinion of him than he deserves." -Ed Howe

"Come live with me, and be my Love;/And we will all the pleasures prove." -Christopher Marlowe

"It's not love's going hurts my days/But that it went in little ways." -Edna St. Vincent Millay

"Let me say . . . that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love." -Che Guevara

Its not enough, of course it is not enough.  Love is personal and touches each of us in different ways and different times.  How much, much more I would have written on an impossible subject to define.  Find love, enjoy it, and let yourself go so that you may experience this delicious part of life fully ...even if it brings eventual pain.  Love is life.
