Interesting Love Statements !

Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor;
after her husband has walked across it in his barn boots. 

~   Author unknown, as printed in The Hoosier Farmer

Love is an exploding cigar we willingly smoke. 

~    Lynda Barry

Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love; 
it is the faithless who know love's tragedies. 

~    Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1891

Love doesn't sit there like a stone, 
it has to be made, like bread; 
remade all of the time, made new. 

~  Ursula K. LeGuin

Love is not singular except in syllable. 

~   Marvin Taylor

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

~   John Ciardi
