Famous Love Quotes

by Rob Zer

Love has been compared to a garden of flowers, a river, a flame, illness and war; it is a language spoken by everyone the world-over, though it is not spoken often enough, and when it is words hardly seem adequate.  It is given and received most effectively without cost or trade, and a holiday has been established in the honor of love, giving an annual excuse for recognition of affection. Sometimes love is serious, sometimes silly; other times love is sad or jealous, even angry. There has been something said about every face of love. No matter how painful it can be when it goes wrong, love is the most desired commodity in society today, which is why there is so much said about the subject.
