"I Love you." is not a phrase. It is a sentence.

Way too often, I love you is made a phrase. I love you because... I'd love you if...I love you but....

iamnasra said...

Its gentle to say I love for no reason at all

iamnasra said...

For unconditional love you need a pair of huskies...

True. Statement or phrase or whatever...feels good when someone says it without a BUT in there.

a sentence or a phrase, more often, a farce, imho. when people say "i love you", i think more often than not, they are actually saying "please love me".

It is not a phrase or just a sentence. It is so much more than that.Very deep.

Hi ~nm: How have u been?

Hi mampi: ha ha.. but that is true... love is probably the most difficule when it becomes a sentence.

hi adi: Yes, you complete that sentence well.

Hi soulbrush: Yes, there are.. and i think, for all them...this might apply..

Hi nasra: I have not commented on ur blog lately, but its really good poetry there .. and am proud to know that your book has been published.

Hi phos: I am thick in the head on that one..

Hi Solitaire: you bet it does!

Hi Dharma: Thats a line of thought, but am not sure its always true..

Hi venus : :-)

Our huskies are always there for some petting. Siberians crave attention

human being said...

Nisha said...

life will be so much better if we used it as a phrase only and not as a sentence, right?

How do we know said...

Hi Chandni: :-)

Hi Phos: OKIE. Now me gets it... u do draw parallels!! :-)

Hi human being: Where have u vanished???

Hi nisha: I don't know.. guess it depends on each one's perspective. I prefer using it as a sentence.
