Love isn't an emotion or an instinct - it's an art.
Mae West [born Mary Jane West, 1893-1980]

[Mae West and a very young Cary Grant in I'm No Angel (1933)]

I really appreciate this quote by Mae West about love, perfect for her cinematic persona and for her unmistakable style.
Is love really an art?
And if love is an art, is also a part of it the talent to not say anything, if you can't say something nice? Is it actually wisest to say nothing?

Silence is golden, they say.

Die Liebe ist weder ein Gefühl noch ein Instinkt, sondern eine Kunst.
Mae West [gebürtig Mary Jane West, 1893-1980]

Ich weiss dieses Zitat von Mae West, welches allerdings ihrer filmischen Rolle und ihrem unverwechselbaren Styl passend ist, sehr zu schätzen.
Ist die Liebe wirklich eine Kunst?
Und wenn die Liebe eine Kunst ist, ist ein Teil davon die Fähigkeit nichts zu sagen, wenn man nichts Schönes sagen kann? Ist das tatsächlich das Vernünftigste, nichts zu sagen?

Reden ist Silber, Schweigen ist Gold, wie das Sprichwort sagt.

Amare non è né un'emozione né un istinto: è un'arte.
Mae West [pseudonimo di Mary Jane West, 1893-1980]

Adoro questa citazione di Mae West sull'amore, perfettamente in accordo con la sua icona cinematografica e il suo stile inconfondibile.
Amare è davvero un'arte?
E se amare è un'arte, ne fa parte anche la capacità di non dire nulla, nel caso non si possa dire qualcosa di gentile?  Non dire nulla è davvero la cosa più saggia da fare?
Is it actually wisest to say nothing?

Il silenzio è d'oro, dice il proverbio.
