“The reason death sticks so closely to life isn’t biological necessity - it’s envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance and gloom is but a passing shadow of a cloud” —Pi (The Life of Pi) (via quote-book)
If we fall in love because someone makes us laugh, what happens when we no longer find them funny? If we fall in love because someone is beautiful, what happens when that beauty fades? If we fall in love because someone can provide for us, what happens when they lose their wealth? Love defies all reasons. When you truly love someone you love them at the core... in good or bad times.
“I almost wished we were butterflies and lived but three summer days. Three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain” —Bright Star (via quote-book)
