In essence, its trying to convey that people shouldn't neglect what their "heart" (or instinct, or gut) tells them, and that we shouldn't rely wholly on logic.

Well, I'm a bit of a literalist, so I would say that it means that whereever there is no reason at all for why things are happening it means it happens because of love.

Emotion vs. senses.

Mind vs. matter.

etc.


Where did you get it from? The original in French, I mean.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

That when you're in love you do stupid stuff. People will do anything for love. When there is no hope of succeeding, Love carries you through. E.g LOTR =]

for me (without thinkig at all, just first impression)

When I am going out with a girl who turns out to be a dumb bitch, it is obvious that I shouldn't be with her anymore, but if I'm in love, I can hope that she'll change

which definitely isn't what was meant by the quote, but hey, this is a guitar site

it means: if all hope is gone (logic hope) then you can hope with your heart anyway

I put my tobacco under my upper lip, just like anyone would do.

It means that you can love that extremely hot chick sitting in front of you in Math class, even though there is no way in hell she would ever hook up with you.

You can love, even though reason tells you there is no way.

It means people in love are idiots, and do stupid crap because they aren't thinking straight.

This is not a positive assertion about love.

Even if logic dictates something impossible, or if all seems terribly lost, love will still try to pull you through it and give you hope even if logic and reason dictate that the situation is lost for you.

This is pretty much what it means to me as well.

When I read something like that, it reminds me that logic is flawed and not the ultimate denominator of our world, and that human empathy and love has so much more force and power than "reason", whatever that may be.

Most of the time anyways love becomes its own reason.
My God, it's full of stars!
