This is my favourite, but perhaps that's because recently I've been inundated by it :-) LOL

Sherry, I can sure relate to that! Luciatea, we're getting into some deep philosophy here! Mysticmother, I'm with you; I love that quote.

I love the Oscar Wilde quote.

One of my personal favorites is from Romeo and Juliet:

“Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. Being purged a fire sparkling in lovers eyes, being vexed a sea nourished with lovers tears, What is it else? A madness most discreet, A choking gall and a perserving sweet.” Act 1, Scene 1.

Poor Romeo. He was so in love with the idea of being in love. *sigh*
