thursday's ten: about love

it's all about love here on the blog today, of COURSE :)
here's a few quotes and photos that i've collected over the last few weeks.  from the little old couple on the hammock who i hope to be someday, to the wise words of Mother Teresa, these are things that spoke to my heart.  may they also speak to you.

(original photo links can be found by clicking on the pictures :)

Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.
- Swedish proverb

“Love is a temporary madness; it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. 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. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”  
- Louis de Bernieres

The best thing in life is finding someone who knows all your mistakes and weaknesses and still thinks you're completely amazing

It is a risk to love. What if it doesn't work out? Ah, but what if it does.
- Peter McWilliams

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 everything, you risk even more
- Erica Jong

I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts there can be no

more hurt, only more love.
- Mother Teresa
