….1970 film Love Story Starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal is famous for the quote “Love means never having to say you’re sorry”. The Quote is actually #13 on American Film Institutes list of top 100 movie quotes. I’ve never seen the film but I know the quote and I don’t really agree with the concept. I think love readily says I’m sorry, if a sorry is necessary. And love then in return forgives.
What does this have to do with my blog?
Nothing…except that I was weary from my day and said to myself “A blog means never having to say you’re sorry”. And wondered where that came from, so I looked it up. Turns out it’s a nice way to say I have no apology for sharing useless information with you tonight.
We both deserve a break from the ONE blog for this day.
No apology necessary 🙂 I seem to come to visit your blog whether or not you have anything to say, which probably says something about too much time on my hands as opposed to you having no time to create a clever blog post. Love you!
I have to agree with you – I never quite got that saying either (and I saw the movie) nor did I think it was a saying I wanted to practice in my personal life either. It seems to me that love means recognizing immediately when a “sorry” is warranted and given quickly, without hesitation. If there is no repentence then there is no forgiveness. (I would hate that – the forgiveness part.) I think both is a huge measure of true love.
