Love Undetectable

“If love is sudden, friendship is steady. At the moment of meeting a friend for the first time, we might be aware of an immediate “click” or a sudden mutual interest. But we don’t “fall in friendship”. And where love is often at its most intense in the periode before the lover is possessed, in the exquisite suspense of the chase, and the stomach-fluttering nervousness of the capture, friendship can only really be experienced when both friends are fully used to each other. For friendship is based on knowledge, and love can be based on mere hope.. You can love someone more than you know him/her, and he can be perfectly loved without being perfectly known. But the more you know a friend, the more a friend he/her is

“Love is a supremely jealous thing. It brooks no rival and obliterates every distraction. It seems to transport the human being – who is almost defined by time and morality – beyond the realm of both age and death. Which is why it is both so irresistible and so delusory”

“Love is about control and loss of control. In love, we give ourselves up to each other. We lose control or, rather, we cede control to another, trusting in a way we would never otherwise trust, letting the other person hold the deepest part of our being in their hands, with the capacity to hurt it mortally”

“With all that’s happened to us – together and apart – i’m inclined to think that somehow we were chosen to know each other, to help sustain each other, and to teach each other about the mysteries of loving, living, dying. Somehow i was able to love you wholly, and this gave me great strenght to face the greatest fears i have known”
