RE: Great quotes
"When I was a little boy, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized, the Lord, in his wisdom, doesn't work that way. So I just stole one and asked Him to forgive me."

I disagree. Big Grin

If you've never loved (romantically speaking), then you don't have a reference point. If you get hurt from love, how can that be better?

I've loved and "lost," and it sucks. Sad

I second this. I've had love that couldn't possibly work, and was lost, and it caused me to endure a terrible first year at University. :\
Aw. Sorry. But I suppose we become better for the things we endure yes?

I think the quotes about people in glass houses should not throw stones has to do with the fact that all of us live in glass houses. all of us have fears , and extreme vulnerabilities, and are very fragile in some way and don't like to be antagonized and tend to be very hurt when it happens. so we shouldn't throw rocks at them if those same rocks wld shatter us and we know how it feels so KNOCK IT OFF!
don't yell. Lol but fair enough.

I think this quote by Noam Chomsky reinforces my point: “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum....”
How can there be lively debate if people are being passive? Hmmmm
You make me think. :-)

I re-agree (dis-disagree?) Big Grin. If you've loved and lost, you have a reference point, so you know more about what you want, what you need, what is acceptable (or not) and what you deserve. Plus you have the fond experiences and memories that go along with attaining *love*. Before (romantic) love you can only build up expectations on what you think it will be like.

To me, it's kind of like wishing you never had gone to Disneyland because at one point the vacation came to an end. At least you have your memories.
Ok, that's really a dear way to see it. Love also grows us up, I reckon.
Thank you for your insight. I struggle with love/relationships.

Maybe I'll be a lil old lady living all alone someday with like 200 cats. And they will all love me unconditionally. Big Grin

Just for the sake of transparency: I uploaded the first image in your post somewhere else and replaced the URL, Guley. My anti-virus program went off whenever I entered this thread.
