I was walking through some part of town and I saw this quote

“True love is highly valued treasure found in exploring” – Chinese quote

 and it got me thinking, how long do you have to explore before you find your soul-mate.

Someone once told me,

LOVE AND DEATH ARE A LINE APART

THEY ATTACK THE SAME ORGAN

ONE TAKES THE HEART ITSELF AND SHARES IT WITH ANOTHER

THE OTHER TAKES ITS BEATS AWAY

So how long before you find a heart sharer, you never know when your beats will go away.

There can be times when you like someone, and the person just doesn’t care as much. Yes, some people are really good at suppressing feelings, but why not show that you care once in a while? Crazy yeah?

There is no life without a partner

No answers without a question asked

No emotions without a conscience

No friendship without you!

Everything in life can be achieved by planning and taking deliberate steps, but you know there are certain things in life that come unplanned and you need to have courage for a great leap. Risks must be taken at some point in time.

It only takes a minute to crush on someone

Probably takes an hour to like someone

Not more than a week to love someone

But to forget someone, that takes a lifetime, you’ll be dead before you forget.

Don’t go for looks – they can be deceiving.

Neither should you go for wealth – even that might fade away.

Go for someone who will make you smile for a longer time that they might make you cry. (You cannot deny it, sometimes, the people you love will make you cry)

Go for someone that makes you smile, because it only takes a smile to make a dark day seem bright.

Explore, carefully and wisely, find that special one that makes your heart smile, and never let go of her/him.

To end this post, I’ll quote Elizabeth Barett Browning

If thou must love me, let it be for naught
Except for love’s sake only. Do not say
‘I love her for her smile, her look, her way
Of speaking gently, for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
A sense of pleasant ease on such a day’
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or change for thee, and love, so wrought,
May be unwrought so. Neither love me for
Thine own dear pity’s wiping my cheeks dry,
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
But love me for love’s sake, that evermore
Thou mayst love on, through love’s eternity.
