What is love...?

"...love is desire sustained by unfulfillment." ~ Angela Carter


“Love is a fiend, a fire, a heaven, a hell, where pleasure, pain, and sad repentance dwell.” ~ Richard Barnfield


"Love is a grave mental disease." ~ Plato


Baby, don't hurt me...


"Love isn't a battlefield, it's a genocide." ~ Balthzar, The Kid


"Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come." ~ Matt Groening


"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down." ~ Woody Allen


...don't hurt me...


"Love is so short, forgetting is so long." ~ Pablo Neruda


“A mighty pain to love it is, and 'tis a pain that pain to miss; but of all pains, the greatest pain, it is to love, but love in vain.” ~ Abraham Cowley


"...love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and *die*." ~ Ronny Cammareri, Moonstruck


...no more.











"Someone, tell a joke..." ~ Old Man, Moonstruck

  3. I looooooooove Moonstruck!!!!!! And to show my age, the first 'what is love' song that popped into my head wasn't Haddaway's, but the Howard Jones song from 1984 or 85. Gonna have to steal Vadislav for Facebook but will credit you. I hope these quotes you've posted don't mean that your relationship didn't work out.

  5. Love is an illusion, an impossible quest, a gift that we all want to see returned, but too often isn't!

    Cynical! Yeah, I know . . .
    Love the quotes!


    PS: I will be sending an email, thank you for volunteering - and I do return the love!

  6. Love is friendship on fire. -Bruce Lee

    We do not walk graciously into love my friend, we fall clumsily, head first, ass over backwards, and often lose a shoe. -me
