Love Quote By Heinlein

I can’t believe this is nowhere in my old reading notebooks or in the blog — I just searched around and could not find it, but here is one of my all time favorite quotes:

“Love” is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
-Jubal Harshaw, Stranger in a Strange Land

I was at a wedding last weekend in which the best man’s toast included this quote. The toast was probably the best I’ve ever heard, and of course I love the reference to this quote, as I always use it in my definition of love…

On a side note that made me chuckle, one of the guys on a table next to us said “Robert who??”

Sigh… Only the grandfather of SciFi…
