On ‘love’.

Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.

Hafiz

I think that if you read this quote out to a classroom of people, every single person in the room would interpret it differently. That’s kind of what love is, though. When you really stop to think about it, everyone sees love in a different way. Everyone feels love in a different way. No two people love the same.

Perhaps the best thing we can do for ourselves with respect to love is to remember that no love is the same. That doesn’t mean it still can’t be the light of your life if you allow it.

  1. I’ve never read that but it does touch me! Love along with so many other things is complicated beyond our understanding sometimes but if we let it touch us it will grow.

  2. My heart sinks when I read the quote several times. Last night my ex fiance and I was discussing what is love, and I expressed to him my version of love and happiness. He said I was wrong and that I do not know how to love. When I read this I think about the hope it gives me on the inside that there are such things as different and mutual love and respect. My love has its moments, but it also requires solitude to reflect and grow for the future days to come.
