“Steven Weinberg, a University of Texas physicist and Nobel Prize winner, once wrote in his 1977 book The First Three Minutes, ‘The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless.’ Dr. Weinberg has been explaining that statement ever since. He went on to say that it is by how we live and love and, yes, do science, that the universe warms up and acquires meaning.”
-Dennis Overbye, “The Joy of Physics Isn’t in the Results, but in the Search Itself”

“Love is selling cars (‘Love. It’s what makes a Subaru, a Subaru’), LensCrafters eyeglasses (‘See what you love, love what you see.’) and Payless shoes (‘I [heart] shoes.’), not to mention long-running campaigns for McDonald’s (‘I’m lovin’ it.’) and Olay (‘Love the skin you’re in.’).”
“Socrates had it wrong: it is not the unexamined but finally the uncommitted life that is not worth living.  Descartes too was mistaken; ‘Cogito ergo sum’ – ‘I think therefore I am’? Nonsense. ‘Amo ergo sum’ – ‘I love therefore I am.’ Or. as with unconscious eloquence St. Paul wrote, ‘Now abide faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.’ I believe that. I believe it is better not to live than not to love.”
-William Sloan Coffin
“The bottom line in the biblical definition of love is commitment. Love is not fickle; it is not mere sentimentality; it’s not subjective; it’s more than a nice feeling.”
-Philip Carlson, from his book You Were Made for Love
