There are many ways to experience love. It can feel like a knife in your back, or it can feel like you're being lifted up by winged creatures towards a beautiful blinding light.
Nostalgia is being blind to the bad and only remembering the good. Thinking about all the love I had for her is a positively Helen-Kelleresque experience.
What starts love is your ability to stupefy and blind yourself to the point of being able to fall in love. What stops it is waking up.
Being humble matters.
Wir sind mit sehenden Augen blind.
Hartmann von Aue
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
