    I love this quote. We may be surprised what other people consider good literature compared to what we consider the same.

    This quote really strikes home. The analogy of literature and love is genius!

    Everyone has a way of seeing things differently from other people. It’s this diversity that makes humanity so special 🙂

    These words are so much true. Literature is like art and what someone finds artistic another person may not.

    A well thought out quote. In other words, as with love, in literature, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

    The best thing about love and literature is that you have the freedom to make your rules and break them. You are the boss of your game.

    In literature just like in love you have to discover for yourself. You make your rules as you get by, which my differ from the other people’s.

    Interetsing quote but very thoughtful one. You always find what others discovered totaly out of this world.

    I agree with the simple truth of this quote. Sometimes, life is always so surprising in ways we cannot imagine to each of our own choices, and the choices of others.

    Love and literature go hand in hand. Literary pieces are made out of love for example.

    When it comes to love..we have no freewill..it just happens to us..we don’t get to choose who we have feelings for

    We all have different definition of what love is. However, love and literature are both beautiful things.

    You can never choose who you love. However, once you do it is now a choice if it will work or not. In terms of literature this is a topic than is always being explored.

    For me, when it comes to love and literature, all is very unpredictable and everything is possible.

    We see things differently. Love and literature are the same somehow.

    Yes when it comes to love people have their choice and can write their own words differently. Definitely, it will sometimes surprise others in their love plans.

    It’s not only in love where this applies. I think the choices of others have an impact in our own choices in the other facets of our own lives.
