3. No one is ever too young to fall in love.
4. It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
5. Love at first sight is possible.
6. Love is blind.
7. Love never changes.
8. Physical attraction must precede true love.
9. If you’re really in love, physical appearance doesn’t matter.
10. You can’t expect a person to change his or her habits after marriage.
11. In love relationships, “opposites attract.”
12. If someone does not return your affection, the best thing to do is to keep trying to change his or her mind.
13. You have to work at love.
14. For the most part, being in love is a “pain in the neck.”
15. If you truly love someone, you will not be attracted to anyone else.
After completing and handing in the quiz, the class watched the introduction to Romeo and Juliet from several movies. The general setting for the play involves a feud between two families, the Capulets and the Montagues, in feudal Verona.
the homework for today was to work on the CSAP packet and the writing conferences for the wikified research paper.
