“Love is never having to say you’re sorry.”

Dedicated to DC, one of the most intelligent and beautiful young people I have ever had the fortune to meet.

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” This catchphrase is from the 1970 movie adaptation of the novel “Love Story” by Erich Segal, (1937-2010); one of my favorite movie lines.

Read it carefully, what does it say to you?

I’m amazed by the large number of people who interpret this phrase as being self-centered and egotistical.

“I love you, so I don’t have to say I’m sorry about insulting you, or hitting you. You should know me.”

I don’t read it that way. I read it as saying,:

“I will never intentionally say or do anything to you that warrants an apology and forgiveness.”

What do you think?
