"Well, sometimes love seems easy. Like it's easy to love rain and hawks. And it's easy to love wild plums and the moon. But with people, seems like love's a hard thing to know. It gets all mixed up. I mean, you can love one person in one way and another person in another way. But how do you know you love the right one in every way?"
--'Where the Heart Is'
“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.”
--Nicholas Sparks, 'The Notebook'
“True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness.”
Love is where you find it. Songs on the radio. Friends at the table. Smiles in the backyard. Stories passed around. Kids in the park. Brown leaves. Cool breeze. And finding that special someone.
Everybody in this world has to do a whole lot more than to love the one they spend a lifetime looking for. You just can't keep your love in a cosy little shell. Gotta love the one you love and the whole darn world as well.
The past is behind us, love is in front and all around us.
