It's that rather over-commercialized St. Valentine's day here. Now I'll be first to admit I am the guy who still tries to give his wife a flower and romantic dinner and card, not so much because I am victim of advertising, but because I like an opportunity to spoil her, and she still has to cope with me in the other 364 non-Valentine days. And trust me, that's no holiday... anyway, I'm neck deep in this book, which, duh, has a romance in a Fantasy. So I thought... love seems to be the used as a metaphor (surely it's mostly a met-a-two?) and we could have a metaphor challenge here. Someone sent me 99 of these...
"No cord or cable can draw so forcibly, or bind so fast, as love can
do with only a single thread."
(Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy, 1621)
Your turn :-)
