"Love is a gross exaggeration of the difference between one person and everybody else."
George Bernard Shaw
I've always liked this quote since I first heard it in 1966 on WJMD, the Kalamazoo College radio station. Actually, my friend Bob Snyder heard it and relayed it to me. Where are you these days, Bob?
Anyway, it's not cynical. How can it be, I mean George Bernard Shaw; he actively encouraged marriage across lines of both race and class. He also co-founded the London School of Economics and he like shortbread.
So go out there today and grossly exaggeration how you feel about someone.
