Love

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two …..
               —St. Augustine

I wished for nothing beyond her smile, and to walk with her thus, hand in hand, along a sun-warmed, flower-bordered path.
               —Andre Gide

See there’s this place in me where your fingerprints still rest, your kisses still linger, and your whispers softly echo. It’s the place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.
               —Gretchen Kemp

Sometimes your nearness takes my breath away; and all the things I want to say can find no voice. Then, in silence, I can only hope my eyes will speak my heart.
               —Robert Sexton

Within you I lose myself. Without you I find myself wanting to become lost again.

If you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours forever. If it dosent, then it was never meant to be.

I dont know why they call it heartbreak. It feels like every part of my body is broken too.
               —Chloe Woodward

Love is a gross exaggeration of the difference between one person and everybody else.
               —George Bernard Shaw
