Love and Iron


Angela Merkel was asked “What is easiest to explain in 160 characters, the theory of relativity, love, or why it’s important to go and vote?’

Her reply was “I have to admit there are things you can’t explain in 160 characters. But for love you don’t need any characters at all.” (The Economist, 14 August 2012. Foto credit AFP).

I was really taken by surprise and once again understood the limitations stereotyping brings. Before this interview of hers I would have never put this iron Lady in a basket with Love.

I guess Love melts even the iron 🙂
