Way I see it is love is when everything around you seems better than it really is and you don’t know why you’re so happy all the time, but it’s because you know you’re loved. They say you fall in love when you’re away from the person – not when you’re with them. Interesting…? All I know is it’s great song material for me and 90% at least of all the songs out there are based on love and unrequited love. Is unrequited love the best kind??
Here’s some quotes I found:
“Other men said they have seen angels,
But I have seen thee
And thou art enough.”
~ by G. Moore ~
“I love you – those three words have my life in them. ”
~ by Alexandrea to Nicholas III ~
“I’d like to run away
But if you didn’t come
And find me …
I would die. ”
~ by Shirley Bassey ~
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn
Is to love and be loved in return. ”
~ From “Unforgettable with Love” by Natalie Cole
“Soul meets soul on lover’s lips. ”
~ by Percy Bysshe Shelly ~
“I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion –
I have shudder’d at it.
I shudder no more.
I could be martyr’d for my religion
Love is my religion
And I could die for that.
I could die for you. ”
~ by John Keats ~
“Falling in love is what I do best. It’s the staying in love that’s the tricky part.”
“Girl: Suprised you’re still single after a year now
Girl: You told me you found the ONE when we broke up
Ex: I did, that was a year ago but then the ONE left me.
Girl: Ah that sucks, who was she?
“Times goes by a lot slower when you miss the one you love. . .”
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
“Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.”
“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly”
“Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.”
“Love is being stupid together.”
“I don’t wish to be everything to everyone, but I would love to be something to someone…”
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armour, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life… You give them a piece of you. They didn’t as for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like “maybemaybe we should be just friends” turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love”
“Being in love is an exhilarating feeling, and it has the potential to become real love. Being in love is like the hook for the opportunity of real love to present itself. When you are in love with someone, you feel very attracted to the other person, in several different levels: physical, mental, emotional and yes, spiritual. From getting to know the person with whom you are in love, real love has the opportunity to flourish.
Real love, unlike an infatuation is realistic. Real love is a complete acceptance of the other person, and of oneself. Because if you can’t love yourself, who can you love? Or who will love you? Complete acceptance does not mean that we don’t find shortcomings in the other person, as that is not possible, we are humans and we are not perfect, we all make mistakes. Complete acceptance means discernment with no judgment. It means that we accept the whole package just as it is, without trying to change the other person to meet our every need.
Real love resides in knowing one another. In knowing what our strengths are, what our weaknesses are, what our potential is. In knowing these things we come to respect, and admire each other, and out of that, real love is born. In the words of Wayne Dyer, ” Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.””
