MAthePA,

Your poll suggestion would have been perfect for Valentines Day.

My vote:
Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's shortcomings but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. [Apostle Paul; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7]

MAthePA,

Although this would be perfect for Valentine's Day, it is timely now:
What the world needs now is love sweet love ...

'Great poll! I liked your "Hope Is," as well.

FYC (both from 'The Mission'):

Father Gabriel:
"If might is right, then love has no place in the world. It may be so, it may be so. But I don't have the strength to live in a world like that."

Rodrigo Mendoza:

"Though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor and though I give my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. Love suffereth and love is kind. Love envieth not. Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child. But when I became a man, I put away childish things. But now abideth faith, hope, love... these three. But the greatest of these is love." (From 1 Corinthians 13:3)

rubyfruit76, thank you.

I love The Mission, and it's a good example of greater remake, this time to Chinmoku (1971). It is stylized well by using the archaic form of speech based on traditional edition of the Bible, but the quotes from 1 Corinthians 13:
2. Though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains and have not love, I am nothing. 
3. Though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor and though I give my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.
4. Love suffereth and love is kind. Love envieth not. Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up.
13. Abideth faith, hope, love... these three. But the greatest of these is love.
might sound as Gunganese for great majority of the foreign voters. For example, try to compare the above Corinthians 13:4 to its modern version starting the quote from A Walk to Remember , or to its adaptation from 27 Dresses )))

How come the Love Story one is at number 34? It's the first one I had in mind and I really thought you had forgotten it :)

I agree it is a top five or last choice position answer, the question/title Love is really invokes Love Story's iconic scene and line?

FYC, I think you should stick to "quotes", when it goes over two sentences of more than 10 words each, it gets closer to speeches than quotes. Or keep the speech but then put in bold letters the key statement about love.

ElM., it's good if we both understand that all the phrases in the list are actually quotes -- all of them, including those where the shorten variants are marked with "..." namely 3 dots. It is always preferable to have a great thought expressed in little words, but it's not the only way how simple words blossom into well-cited phrases.

Anyway, I appreciate any suggestion that could help the voters to understand the main idea faster and still correct in meaning. Let's start from here:

Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's shortcomings but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.
Please suggest how the above quote would be better served? Because if we have no approach for this quote, the rest also has no algorithm to follow. Thank you )

I think "related" is a better word to use here:

"Relative" changed to "Related".

Ed, excuse me for this off-topic, but it's a hot link as thus. 
Jessica, I've also forgotten a movie and the very good quote for "Love Is..." poll:

"Love is a perpetual juggling of three balls, the names of which are heart, words and loins. How easy it is to juggle these three balls, and how easy to drop one of them."

may I put instead of the existing non-voted:
"Love is of no value without power and position" ?

Ed and Jessica, I'm not going to if one of you thinking it's not a better replacement. Thank you.
Yes, I think you can replace it if you wish.
