Quotes Mildred: Love, I have found, is temporary. It's stupid, but it's like a weed. You know, if it's there you don't have to pay that much attention to it, it just grows, with just a little bit of water. But if you really try, you can kill it. It doesn't have a home, you know, it's tragic. If it's not wanted, it'll just move on.
