The following are related quotes:
- “I love the woman whose number is 545.”
- — Anon (50BC), graffiti on the walls of the city of Pompeii 
- “Love is a function of x, y, and z, of a kind which is known as ‘potential’. If the wandering course of the moon, by algebra can be predicted, human affections must yield to it soon.”
- “Someday, after mastering winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
- “If it is right, it happens. The main thing is not to hurry.”
- — John Steinbeck (1958), “Letter of Advice on Love Sickness to Thom (teenage son)” (Ѻ)
- “In my opinion, it is easier to use, not the Gibbs, but the negative of the Gibbs, because we do not want the potential energy, which has to be a minimum, to be stable, and the energy of physics corresponds to an emotion of attraction, which is ‘love’, for example. And love is not a negative sign, love is positive. The negative Gibbs function [-dG] is the measure of the general happiness of a society. And this has to be at a maximum in order to produce a stable society.”
