"It seems unwise to me, on behalf of the planet or

whoever handles the love life of sensible people,

that there exists the possibility of really liking

someone who doesn't want you. It shouldn't be

allowed, there should be a strong clause that

prohibits the creation of love that isn't wanted

if there is no room for love, then it should be

physically impossible to create it, because

afterwards there is nothing that can be done with it."
