….’tis not all?

Hmmm, for oratory purposes, ’tis simply an awesome quote. However, why does it feel illusional?

“Unless it is mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of time. There are many mediocre things in life – love should not be one of them.” Unknown

So, why did he think the state of being crazily in love with someone, as a progressive series of acts and actions; during which they will stumble and fall. However, as long as they get up after every fall then, that utopian state of ‘love’ will simply not elude them?



  1. the quote makes sense.. but apart from the mad, passionate, extraordinary love, i also want the stable love, the you’v got my back love,. the love that is kind, not puffed up, not envious, does not rejoice in iniquity, bears, believes and endures all things. and does not fail kinda love

  2. doll , my thots exactly.I do not entirely agree with the quote cos the quote for me describes the initial stage of love but then again if the person means that if at the initial stages it cant be all that…mad,passionate,extra-ordinary,what would u possibly have remaining when it has simmered down. cos frankly love

  3. unknown is just waxing lyrics…

  4. Mad, passionate, extraordinary love rocks. And it does work for some people. In some cases, it doesn’t fizzle out. What happens is, time tames it into a more mature, more stable love. And that type of love makes more sense than the ones that never had “fire”.

  5. Great quote…let’s kiss and make up.


  6. It makes sense, but sometimes love is not easy to do. It takes the love of God to make us extraordinary lovers. Either way, I love the quote though.

  7. Love is overrated! simple.

  8. Hah! Jaycee you said. Love is certainly not easy to do without God. To love without God will be full of selfishness and self-centeredness.

  9. …but LOVE in it’s true essence IS extraordinary. There’s nothing mediocre about love and I’m not talking of lust, passion or lust. Love the quote though. 🙂
