Hi,

If love is the answer could you rephrase the question?

Can you tell me the meaning of this quote?

This was said by Lily Tomlin, the comedian. It is clearly a humorous remark. It suggests that the speaker does not understand the purpose of love, and in fact implies that the speaker thinks love has no purpose.

It's a bit like asking 'If love is the solution, what is the problem?'.

It makes fun of the common saying 'Love is the answer', which is said by some people who believe that love is a wonderful thing which is the answer to every problem.

Best wishes, Clive
