I wish my friend John from highschool knew that. The word he chose was not 'love' but 'suicide'.

I think therefore I think I am

Tyson, so sorry for the loss of your friend.d'oh! And with love comes understanding, being open, freedom and the ability to be non-judgemental.

Oops, I nearly forgot one of the most important factors of love. Tenderness.

I love this quote! Love lives.

I am carrying my heart~I am carrying my rhythm~I am carrying my prayers~But you can't kill my spirit~It's soaring and strong (Paula Cole's Me Lyrics)***We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We ARE spirtual beings having a human experience.(T.deChardin)***There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. (Albert Einstein)

Love is a utility infielder, who bats around .230 - in a good year. We're glad he's on the team, for the sake of clubhouse banter.

love is actually the greatest oxymoron of all time.Shame on you There can never be somebody that can hurt you most but the one you love...yet there can never be somebody that can give you the greatest joy/happiness but the one you love.

wow, I like the oxymoron mariel, can I quote you on that?

hupomone, that is hilarious :] hahaha got me chuckling.

Wisdumb, the best place to find love is with something that's non-judgmental. Like a dog :] but if you want human love, you have to find love in yourself first.

I think many people would argue that love comes with a weight and a pain all its own.

Who knew that Sophocles would have been such a great Beatles fan?

very true... and the reason for that is expectation... we expect a lot from whom we love or that is what i called significance of love "bond"...
i am also in agreement with what "littlemissgiggles" said... it is that way i guess ...:)>

"Women need a reason. Men need a place."

To women, perhaps, the world was made when the devil first looked into the mirror...
To men, perhaps, the world was made when God needed a place to make a stand...Boo hoo!
