Love Quotes: John Ciardi


“Love is the word used to label the sexual excitement of the young, the habituation of the middle-aged, and the mutual dependence of the old.”

-John Ciardi

At first I read this as a quote about growing old together, then I realized not everyone would hear this phrasing as a nice thing. Plus, I don’t want to say the word “sexual” in front of strangers.
