oh man i SO disagree ! that statement could be generally true, but in certain cases, i can help falsify it :)
that's an evil qoutation. Not precisely 'evil' but it got me all prickly. sometimes, i wish i could simply read people's minds. could be so much easier that way.

Yeah, it is an 'evil' quote... it makes me doubtful of my own feelings! Lolz.

should feelings have meaning?

If you are asking about the significance of emotions, then yes, feelings are very significant. Our approach to life, our values and ideals depend primarily on feelings.

Intresting quote .. smiles.. probably it means that the person 'really' in love is so hurt /depressed that 'choice of words' is not the first priority ..
but on the other hand is that really love or 'infatuation' or 'illusion of love'... they say 'real love' means giving without expectation..

Reminds me of scene from an English translation of a punjabi short story by Ajeet Cour. Someone had died, and women were crying at the funeral. Only one woman was not crying and she was the one who was genuinely close and attached to the deceased.
