What is the meaning of love begets love?

Begets means 'to cause', i.e. if you love someone they will love you back.


Just because you love someone, doesn't necessarily mean they will love you back. What this quote really means is that in order to be loved, you must be willing to love. It's similar to "love is a two-way street"; you can't expect to be loved if you won't love that person in return.
