All about Love #1 - Love needs no why

Posted by ~Summer~ on April 24, 2012

I'm officially declaring that it's going to be all about love this week.


Because love found its way to my heart four years ago when we exchanged our wedding vows by the sea.

I wanna celebrate that special moment, I wanna reminisce that feeling of being in seventh heaven, I wanna feel love, I wanna give love, I wanna breathe love.

So, I'm starting off by penning some sweet and inspiring love quotes here.

I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.” – Roy Croft

“Love one another and you will be happy; it is as simple and as difficult as that.” – Michael Leunig

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” – Mother Teresa

“Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.” – William Shakespeare

"You don't marry someone you can live with - you marry the person who you cannot live without." – Unknown

"Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired." – Mark Twain

"You know you are in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." – Dr. Seuss

"Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart." – Unknown 

Perhaps love is the process of my leading you gently back to yourself. Not whom I want you to be, but to who you are." – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"Love ain't love till you give it away"  – Unknown 

The last is my hubby's all-time favourite quote. And boy, am I glad he gave it away to me.  

I'm not really a poetic person nor do I read poems for leisure. That said, this was the one love poem that touched my heart and I have to write it here.

Because She Would Ask Me Why I Loved Her
– Christopher Brennan

If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
If all our tale were told in speech
No mouths would wander each to each.

Were spirits free from mortal mesh
And love not bound in hearts of flesh
No aching breasts would yearn to meet
And find their ecstasy complete.

For who is there that lives and knows
The secret powers by which he grows?
Were knowledge all, what were our need
To thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?.

Then seek not, sweet, the "If" and "Why"
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give. 

You see, love needs no questions. It gets kind of silly to ask things like "Why do you love me?", "Why didn't you like the prettiest girl instead?", "Name the top 3 qualities that you love about me", "Are you going to love me even when I'm fat, ugly and I can't get rid of these irritating stretch marks?" or "Will you love me till the day I die?"

The truth is, true love cannot be explained or justified. Trying to constantly put it into words only belittles its greater meaning.

So go out there and love, feel it with your heart, let it tickle and run through your soul, but don't open your mouth.

Oh, except when you kiss.
