|#6764||That is the true season of love, when we believe that we alone can love,|
that no one could have loved so before us, and that no one will love

-- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

can't hurt you no more.
-- R. Bradbury, "The Fog Horn"
|#6766|| The birds are singing, the flowers are budding, and it is time|

|#6767||The giraffe you thought you offended last week is willing to be nuzzled today.|
|#6768||The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of.|

-- Benjamin Disraeli
|#6772||The myth of romantic love holds that once you've fallen in love with the|
perfect partner, you're home free. Unfortunately, falling out of love
seems to be just as involuntary as falling into it.
|#6773||The only difference in the game of love over the last few thousand years|
is that they've changed trumps from clubs to diamonds.
-- The Indianapolis Star
