"Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come"

About this Quote

This quote by Matt Groening paints a vivid image of the unpredictability of love. It resembles a snowmobile, racing across the tundra, relatively unstoppable, up until it all of a sudden flips over, trapping you underneath. The image of being pinned down by something that was once so exciting and complimentary is an effective metaphor for the sensation of being overwhelmed by love. The night brings a more sense of fear, as the ice weasels come, a symbol of the darkness and risk that can include love. This quote is a tip that love can be both lovely and unsafe, and that it is important to be familiar with the risks.
