“I think there are some people you will just never forget. No matter how many miles stretch between you, no matter how many years unravel in the space, you will defy distance, beat borders, trick time, and continue to exist in each other’s worlds because something that special can’t be broken down so easily.”—Sanam (alfaazkibarsaaat)
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”—1 Corinithians 13:4-8a (via earlyback)
Love isn’t an act, it’s a whole life.
It’s staying with her now because she needs you; it’s knowing you and she will still care about each other when sex and daydreams, fights and futures—when all that’s on the shelf and done with.
Love— why, I’ll tell you what love is: it’s you at seventy-five and her at seventy-one, each of you listening for the others step in the next room, each afraid that a sudden silence, a sudden cry, could mean a lifetimes talk is over.
“When She cried, He cried. When He laughed, She laughed. It was like music or the dancing of a grand ballet or the final pages of a great book. It was love, plain and simple. To have and to hold, to share as one. This was what they wanted; to just be together after waiting for so long.”—The Novel of Us (via earlyback)
