Season 1

[Talking about Golden Girls and Betty White’s character asking Bea Arthur’s what she wants in her next husband] ‘I want someone to grow old with’ and I thought, ‘Of course’ and she said ‘Because Stan never wanted to grow old with me.’ And for some reason, it struck me much later that is what most people don’t want. They want the young, they want the cute, and as soon as you stay that way with your body, your sensibility, it’s all great. And then when you get older, you change. You change physically, you change emotionally, and a lot of people aren’t in it for the long haul. They’re not in it for the changes. They’re not in it for the health scares or, I don’t know, death. They’re not in it for that. And I literally want someone to grow old with, I do. I understand what all those elements are. I saw it with my mom and dad when she had to sit next to his deathbed. That’s marriage. That’s love. That’s commitment.
— Viola Davis – Black Love (Season 1, Part 4)

There are four Ls that I think are important. Obviously, love [but also] you have to like each other. Like is so undervalued. […] Laughter: You have to laugh at the same things man, that’s such an important thing to share between two people. And the last thing, not that it’s last on the list, but lust. You have to be attracted to each other – the lust has to be there. Because, otherwise, you’re just roommates. You’re just friends.
Black Love: Part 4

Don’t get advice from people who don’t love the way you love. Who don’t view things the way you view things. A lot of the time, people give advice based on their own insecurities and so what they’re saying will never benefit you.
Erica Campbell: Black Love – Part 4

My relationship with God didn’t allow me to feel comfortable in my foolishness.
Erica Campbell – Black Love (Part 3: Falling Down)

First of all, all love is, is work. It’s not easy. That other stuff, that’s lust. That’s like. Love is work, compromise, sacrifice, and a whole bunch of laughter in between. That’s all love is. The other things: Passion, Lust, all that, […] that’s the other side of it. That’s just something that’s primal. Love, you cannot just love somebody. You have to learn to love somebody because, until you’re tested, you don’t know what your real capacity for actual love is.
Neil Brown Jr. – Black Love (Part 3: Falling Down)
