Not Feeling Romantic? This One's For You.

In the interest of balance, here are a few thoughts on love:

Love is that thing that hangs up behind the bathroom door and smells of Lysol. - Ernest Hemingway

Love: The delusion that one woman differs from another. - Ambrose Bierce

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

It's possible to love a human being if you don't know them too well. - Charles Bukowski

Love: a burnt match skating in a urinal. - Hart Crane

What is irritating about love is that it is a crime that requires an accomplice - Charles Baudelaire

When we want to read of the deeds that are done for love, where do we turn? To the murder column. - George Bernard Shaw

Love is two minutes fifty-two seconds of squishing noises. - Johnny Rotten

Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. - H.L. Mencken

The reason that lovers never weary each other is because they are always talking about themselves. - Francois de la Rochefoucauld

And my personal favorite:

Love is like bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand. - Mae West

The Hart Crane quote has always been a favorite. Thanks. And thank God this day is almost over.
