A friend sent me this line from MOONSTRUCK that is just genius, though I am a sucker and I do believe that without love we are all niente. Still I wanted to share it. It's brilliant.
"Love don't make things nice - it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and die. The storybooks are bullshit."
