Saw this somewhere

LOVE IS BLIND

From Shakespeare

But love is blind and lovers cannot see
The pretty follies that themselves commit;
For if they could, Cupid himself would blush


Modern-day research supports the view that the blindness of love is not just a fugurative matter. A research study in 2004 by University College London found that feelings of love suppressed the activity of the areas of the brain that control critical thought.

Of course, we should all take note of J Mason Brewer's advice in Worser Days and Better Times, 1965 (which is described as a 'collection of negro humour'):

I don't make love by the garden gate,
For love is blind, but the neighbors ain't.
