When the smooth softness of youth is replaced by the delicate softness of age, I will still want to touch your skin.
"Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. That is just being 'in love', which any fool can do.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident."― 50. When this red hair is white, I will still love you.
When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising.
This can go on and on--series polygamy--until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment.
I will share your life with you, Meredith, and I will love you until the last breath leaves your body or mine.” ― Laurell K.
Hamilton, “When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us.It gives us someone, even better than a friend, to dance and dine with, someone to adventure with. And as it grows, loves gives us a confidant, that special someone to share our deepest, darkest secrets and our highest hopes and wildest dreams — someone who sticks by after hearing all about to write sonnets and sing love songs — and why love makes us do things that other people might even think are a little crazy. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.(If you've ever been in love, you'll totally understand). You can't see their smile or bring them food or tousle their hair or move them around a dance floor. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever.If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision."―46."I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect.They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we're gone."―44.
