Put another way, it just means love is blind!! That is all. Intelligence doesnt come into the equation when ppl fall in love. They dont 'calculate' so to speak, and calculation, deduction, conclusions are all premises of intellingence. One feels or doesn't feel and the reason can be inexplicable at the best of timesm, cos some ppl would be wondering just what the attraction is that pulled person A towards person B, when they can give a dozen reasons why the person B is unsuitable for person A and person A at the time of being in love just doesnt see any of those objections. He sees life through a love filtered lens and that is where the triumph of imagination over intelligence comes in  ;D

An zaga na zago.
It is still imagination in use.Maybe its intelligent imagination.
Love is one complicated issue,one who is outside of the situation almost always seem to be the one that thinks he/she is thinking intelligently.And almost all the time the outsider has a general belief that if he were the one in the 'lover boy's' situation he would have done better.
I remember a story of one very popular tabi'i,i think Umar bn Abdulazeez was his name,one of his students was in love with a girl and he only finds pleasure idan aka yi maganar yarinyar/matar.Umar used to accuse him of being too much in love and the person would tell him that it was a 'jarraba' from God.
When it was Umars time to fall in love,the situation was so complex and what he did was worse than that student.

That quote afterall makes sense.

Here's another one so we dont deviate:
All art is but imitation of nature.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
