(About Belief & Faith, Facts, Joy & Excitement, Love, Romantic Love, Uncertainty)

I really don't see anything romantic in proposing. It is very romantic to be in love. But there is nothing romantic about a definite proposal. Why, one may be accepted. One usually is, I believe. Then the excitement is all over. The very essence of romance is uncertainty. If ever I get married, I'll certainly try to forget the fact.

("The Importance of Being Earnest")

Oscar Wilde
