Dr. Seuss defines “love.”

We are all a little weird
and life’s a little weird,
and when we find someone
whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness
and call it

love.

~ Dr. Seuss

PS:

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”

And, letting go is a part of love.

“I’m glad we had the times together just to laugh and sing a song, seems like we just got started and then before you know it, the times we had together were gone.”

And, a smile:

“Cause when a guy does something stupid once, well that’s because he’s a guy. But if he does the same stupid thing twice, that’s usually to impress some girl.”

 

Bonus.

*Editor’s Update: the first quote is misattributed to Dr. Seuss: Robert Fulghum said it.

 

Walk the Talk Show // Before you fall in love with another, fall in love with yourself!

that's not Dr. Seuss. It's Robert Fulghum from his book TRUE LOVE. This is one of the most widely misattributed quotes on the internet.
