Walking in love bubbles...
Found some interesting quotes on love. It got me thinking. It seems every single person is in a moment of love. Whether we are in love, recently just out of love, looking for love or giving our love.
It seems no matter where you are in your life (sometimes we say we aren't ready) we are in some sort of love bubble. I didn't realize this till recently how much energy we put towards love. Humans need love.
I think love, love; you just cant explain it. Its something you feel differently each time and varying in each instance. I find it more fascinating that we cant seem to live with out it (walking in love bubbles)....
"The love in our hearts wasn't put there to stay, for love isn't love until you give it away."
"Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real."
- Iris Murdoch
"Well, it seems to me that the best relationships--the ones that last-- are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is...suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with."
- Dana Scully (The X-Files)
"To be loved, be lovable."
"Love conquers all things; let us too surrender to Love."
"The greatest happiness of life it the conviction that we are loved."
- Victor Hugo
"You don't get to choose, you just fall."
" If love is a sin, punish me by kisses. And if love is a crime, I wanna be your victim."
"If I know what love is, it is because of you."
- Herman Hesse
"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it... It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more."
- Erica Jong
"No man is worth your tears, and the one who is won't make you cry."
"If you spend your life trying to find the perfect 'one', you'll find it too late. True love comes when you least expect it."
- Francesca R. Aguado
