Sze Zeng's favourite quotes on 'love'

"Love means loving the unlovable - or it is no virtue at all." (G.K Chesterton)

"If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity." (J. Baudrillard)

"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable." (C.S Lewis)

"A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished." (Zsa Zsa Gabor)

"If I love you, what business is it of yours?" (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

"While God waits for His temple to be built of love, men bring stones." (Rabindranath Tagore)

OK.... and here is my take:

Love is like water that we can't live without. The more we drink, the more we pee. Thus shopping malls sell drinks and provide toilets.

How about you? What's your take?
