… arrives like lightning. Growing close takes time, but realizing you have fallen in love comes in a sudden spark like a switch abruptly thrown. Love’s realization comes unexpectedly swift in its own good time.

From “If I fell” by Lennon and McCartney
If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand?
Cos I’ve been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands.

…like wind, snow, sun and rain is a force of nature, but it’s the only one felt from the inside out as it blows, snows, burns and falls within.

Musician and poet John Lennon
There are two basic motivating forces:
fear and love.
When we are afraid,
we pull back from life.
When we are in love,
we open to all that life
has to offer with
passion, excitement, and acceptance.

…means I can go days not seeing you without growing restless or wondering if something is wrong. How often we communication does not really matter much either. What we share is the first time romantic love has not brought me a steady flow of anguish and intrigue.

French memoirist Comte DeBussy-Rabutin
is to love
what wind
is to fire;
it extinguishes
the small,
it enkindles
the great.

…is knowing I can depend on you. When I need help you’re always willing to lend a hand. When I need someone to listen you open your ears, heart and mind to me. As good as our love is, our friendship is even better.

French Romantic composer and writer Hector Berlioz
It is so rare…
to find a complete person,
with a soul,
a heart
and an imagination;
so rare for characters as ardent
and restless as ours
to meet
and to be matched together,
that I hardly know
how to tell you
what happiness
it gives me
to know you.

… Love is a sense that comes without doubt and question; a simple, but certain knowing. There is graceful comfort in knowing there is true love in your heart for me.

Contemporary Italian writer C. Joybell C.
We have to allow ourselves to be loved
by the people who really love us,
the people who really matter.
Too much of the time,
we are blinded by our own pursuits
of people to love us,
people that don’t even matter,
while all… the people who do love us
have to stand on the sidewalk
and watch us beg in the streets!
It’s time to put an end to this.
It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.

…is not just an ingredient of joy and happiness. It is a shield against grief, a defender against sadness, armor from loneliness and a guardian of faith in one’s self. Love is both comforting angel and protective warrior at the same time.

American businessman and public servant Nelson Rockefeller

…means I will listen when you want to be heard; I will try to understand when you wish to be understood; I will hug you when you need to feel safe; I will hold your hand when you lose your way; and I will tell you how much you matter when you doubt your worth.

An old traditional Swedish Proverb
Love me
when I
deserve it,
I really
need it.
