Thought to Ponder : Men and Love

A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.
~George Jean Nathan

Men love because they are afraid of themselves, afraid of the loneliness that lives in them, and need someone in whom they can lose themselves as smoke loses itself in the sky.
~V.F. Calverton

Very insightful quotes. There was a quote I saw(I can't remember if it was on your blog or someone else's) that said " A man hasn't given a woman his heart until he's told her not only his dreams but his fears too".

I definitely agree.

Ill drink to these.
How about... "No one can truly (without a doubt) speak of Love and what Love is, until they've acknowledged the Love of God."

Bullshit isn't gender specific, believe me.

i agree with the first quote. all the way. having been on both played the role of the woman who makes a man "electrified and enkindled" as well "tenderly drowsy", i know that (in the end), guys prefer a girl who makes him feel all warm and fuzzy inside; a nice a girl.

Keith October 21, 2008 at 3:05 PM

I'm really feeling that second saying- "Men love because they are afraid of themselves,afraid of the lonliness that lives in them, and need someone in whom they can lose themselves as smoke loses itself in the sky." Wow- That was something to think about. Something I and no other guy would ever articulate ,but would know to be true just the same.
