    It's a grammatical phrase.

    Re: love begets love

    When there's a grammatical phrase, should I explain more or add more sentences to it?

    Re: love begets love

    We can only tell you if it's correct if we know what you were trying to express. I know what "Love begets love" means to me but is it what you meant to say? We don't know.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'Love begets love' is not a universal truth.

    Love more often than not is unrequited.

    Often, love begets divorce.
