LOVE, n.

a temporary insanity curable
by marriage or by removal of the patient from the influences under which he
incurred the disorder. this disease, like
and many other ailments, is prevalent only among civilized races living under
artificial conditions; barbarous nations breathing pure air and eating simple
food enjoy immunity from its ravages. it is sometimes fatal, but more
frequently to the physician than to the patient.
