Ideas of Love


  1. man's grand delusion that one woman differs from another;

  2. sea of emotions entirely surrounded by expenses;

  3. what Plato described as "a grave mental disease";

  4. something they say is blind - it's marriage which is the real eye opener;

  5. that emotion which is not true until returned;

  6. that delightful interval between meeting a beautiful girl and discovering that she looks like a haddock {John Barrymore};

  7. what we have in common with the residents of all third-world countries;

  8. is like measles - much worse when it comes late in life;

  9. the most slippery word in the human language - used by knaves to seduce, by fools for comfort, and by most men to placate the female of the species;

  10. the only fire for which there is no insurance;

  11. an emotion, even if unreturned, has its rainbow;

  12. the crocodile in the river of desire {Bhartrihari c. 625};

  13. the only game that two can play and both win;

  14. the last and most serious of the childhood diseases;

  15. what makes marriage possible - habit makes it last;

  16. is the wisdom of the fool and the folly of the wise;

  17. a disease like measles, we all have to go through it;

  18. a temporary insanity curable by marriage or the removing of the patient from the influences under which he or she incurred the disorder;

  19. the only game that is never called on account of darkness;

  20. the tie that blinds;

  21. consists of happiness, given back and forth;

  22. the only thing that has changed over the millions of years of playing this game is that trumps have changed from clubs to diamonds;

  23. that which makes the world revolve;

  24. is really just being stupid together;

  25. a situation which happens when you think almost as much of another as you do of yourself;

  26. is a fan club with only two members;

  27. the only virtue that can be divided endlessly and still not be diminished;

  28. the triumph of imagination over intelligence;

  29. the child of illusion and the parent of disillusion;

  30. a strange feeling that comes over a man - when he keeps wanting to call a girl by his last name;

  31. is like war - simple to begin but the devil to stop;

  32. is like the action similar to an hourglass: the heart fills as the brain empties;

  33. something which creates a religion that worships two fallible gods;

  34. a word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle aged, and the mutual dependence of the old;

  35. a situation - when it is true, does not mean gazing into each other's eyes, but looking outward together in the same direction as life beckons;

  36. something which combines the two greatest powers on earth - war and peace;

  37. the balm that heals the wounds that words make.
