greybeta: (Robotech - Rick and Lisa)
From Aesop's Fables comes a rather appropriate story for Single Awareness Valentine's Day...

A Lion once fell in love with a beautiful maiden and proposed marriage to her parents. The old people did not know what to say. They did not want to give their daughter over to the Lion, yet they did not wish to enrage the King of Beasts. They pondered over the situation for awhile. Finally, the father said, "We feel highly honoured by your Majesty's proposal, but you see our daughter is a tender young thing, and we fear that in the vehemence of your affection you might possibly do her some injury. Might I venture to suggest that your Majesty should have your claws removed and your teeth extracted? Then we would gladly consider your proposal again." The Lion was so much in love that he had his claws trimmed and his big teeth taken out. But when he came again to the parents of the young maiden, they simply laughed in his face and dared him to do his worst. The father then said:

“Even the wildest can be tamed by love.”
