Mae West, the art of love & the golden silence

Love isn't an emotion or an instinct - it's an art.
Mae West [born Mary Jane West, 1893-1980]

[Mae West and a very young Cary Grant 
in I'm No Angel (1933)]

I really appreciate this quote by Mae West about love, perfect for representing her cinematic persona and her unmistakable style.
Is love really an art?
And if love is an art, is also a part of it the talent to not say anything, if you can't say something nice? Is it actually wisest to say nothing?

Silence is golden, they say.
