Opening Sentence of the Day: That's Amore!

"Love is perhaps one of the few things in life that cannot be planned." -- That's Amore! The Language of Love for Lovers of Language by Erin McKean This is a cute little book, probably published for Valentine's Day or something. It is a phrasebook of sorts, filled with foreign language expressions related to love, organized by main concepts and interspersed with short essays about romantic topics. The cover appealed to me and the illustrations are darling. A summer bon bon.

My favorite comes courtesy of Nat King Cole:

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

Bless you, Bob!

I expect you to chime in on erudite issues like the historical context for racial identity in the rise and fall of the American Communist Party. But I didn't think I would capture a comment on this silly little book of love quotations!

Thank you!

My favorite is from Al Green:

L-O-V-E is strange to me,
Oh I can't explain this feeling
Can't you see that salvation is freeing
It's all in the heavens, can't you see
You can always depend on me
To give you love
