Killer Quotes – Dr. Seuss on mutual weirdness and love.

“We are all a little weird and life is a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

Dr. Seuss

This has to be by far one of my favourite Dr. Seuss quotes speaking as it does directly to the heart, as it were, of the human condition. Call it mutually compatible weirdness, temporary insanity, the biochemical equivalent of eating large quantities of chocolate, oxytocin assisted pair bonding or whatever else you need to love is the thing we all search for and when we find love it is the most comfortable and natural place for us to remain.

Some of us, however, for reasons best known to ourselves, insist on screwing it up once we have found it. The secret, or at least part of the secret, is learning to be in love long after the exhilarating feelings of falling in love have subsided.
