Quotes on Love - Love Is a Feeling and a Code

Language is the medium of expression of new semantic forms which enable intimacy to be communicated. Love is perhaps a feeling, but more than this, it is one to be communicated – or expressed. The complexity of love discourse these days becomes the basis of the renewal of the expressions of love.

Society is forced to develop new, more subtle codes of love. But even a code of love presupposes that love is something originating in the separation of the lovers. And
this, no doubt, is the big difference between a contemporary experience of love and love in the past.

-from John Lechte: Key Contemporary Concepts
