Marriage is like a phone call in the night:
First the ring,
And then you wake up!

|Yesterday, I stood at the temple door interrogating the passersby about the mystery and merit of Love.|
And before me passed an old man with an emaciated and melancholy face, who sighed and said: 'Love is a natural weakness bestowed upon us by the first man.'
But a virile youth retorted:' Love joins our present with the past and the future.'
Then a woman with a tragic face sighed and said.' Love is a deadly poison injected by black vipers, that crawl from the caves of hell. The poison seems fresh as dew and the thirsty soul eagerly drinks it; but after the first intoxication, the drinker sickens and dies a slow death.'
Then a beautiful, rosy cheeked damsel smilingly said:' love is wine served by the brides of Dawn which strengthens strong souls and enables them to ascend to the stars.'
After her a blackrobed, bearded man, frowning, said:' Love is the blind ignorance with which youth begins and ends'.
Another, smiling, declared:'Love is a divine knowledge that enables men to see as much as the Gods.'
Then said a blind man, feeling his way with a cane:' Love is a blinding mist that keeps the soul from discerning the secret of existence, so that the heart sees only trembling phantoms of desire among the hills, and hears only echoes of cries from voiceless valleys.'
And a feeble ancient, dragging his feet like two rags, said, in quavering tones:' Love is the rest of the body in the quiet of the grave, the tranquility of the soul in the depth of Eternity'.
And a five-year-old child, after him, said laughing:' Love is my father and mother, and no one knows love save my father and mother.'
And so, all passed spoke of Love as the image of their hopes and frustrations, leaving it a mystery just as before.
|Love is that kindness,|
So rarely kind and never at all proper.
| Every time you sleep with a boy|
You sleep with all his old girlfriends!
|A heart that loves is always young. |
|Love is a grand and complicated scheme that hardens, like coal hardens into a diamond. |
A diamond is the only thing that can cut glass, and love is the only thing that can shatter a heart.
|From the movie GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES|
|Only the disinterested examiner can clearly see into women's hearts.|
|No one has ever loved anyone |
The way everyone wants to be loved
|I had the sense to recognize, |
That I don't know how to let you go...
|From the song DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO by
