I just opened an email I received from a friend, one of these “pass it along” emails (that occasionally provide something worthy of thought, but often are, well, massive time-wasters), and this one began this way:
“No one falls in love by choice; it is a chance.”
It then went on to say,
No one stays in love by chance; it is by WORK.
And no one falls out of love by chance; it is by CHOICE.
I happen to agree with the final two phrases, but I vehemently disagree with the first one, the idea that falling in love (and isn’t that odd terminology that we use?) is not a choice we make but something that happens to us, in effect, randomly. I think that’s utter and complete nonsense, don’t you?
Talk amongst yourselves…
