For Valentine's Day....

"Love is the expression of one's values, the greatest reward you can earn for the moral qualities you have achieved in your character and person, the emotional price paid by one man for the joy he receives from the virtues of another." - Ayn Rand

    That AR quote is almost as profound as Lt. Commander Data's definition of friendship:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcqIY...

    Ishara Yar: Are you able to have friends?

    Lt. Commander Data: Yes.

    Ishara Yar: But you don't have feelings, do you?
    Lt. Commander Data: Not as such. However, even among humans, friendship is sometimes less an emotional response, and more a sense of... familiarity.

    Ishara Yar: So, you can become used to someone.

    Lt. Commander Data: Exactly. As I experience certain sensory input patterns, my mental pathways become accustomed to them. The input is eventually anticipated, and even missed when absent.

    I don't disagree with the statement.--But it is not
    going to cause a person to fall in love, if he (or
    she) never meets such a person.--Not that Ayn
    Rand is to blame for that. But the current state of
    the world is rotten.
