More thoughts about truth and love

Continuing to think over the truth about love. And have been asking others about their ideas. B (who massages out the muscle spasms in my back with great care) said she’d have to think it over, because it was so complex. And "Sandy", a commenter on my 1-17-08 entry, said: "the truth about love is there is no one universal way to describe it".

To add to the mix, here are a few thoughts about love from others :

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

There is no love apart from the deeds of love; no potentiality of love but that which is manifested in loving.
~Jean-Paul Sartre

Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.
~Eric Fromm

Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.
~Henry David Thoreau

Sometimes it's a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.
~David Byrne

What "love" is I don't know if it's not the response of our deepest natures to one another.
~William Carlos Williams
