Love Is Not Free

They have invented a new phrase, a phrase that is a black and white contradiction in two words -- "free love" -- as if a lover ever had been, or ever could be, free.  It is the nature of love to bind itself, and the institution of marriage merely paid the average man the compliment of taking him at his word.

G. K. Chesterton, "As I  Was Saying," pg.267, cited by Ravi Zacharias in "The Real Face of Atheism," pg.125
