Love is...

"Love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived... You never know, lightning could strike."
This quote is from the movie Meet Joe Black.
It is one of my all time favorite movies. I think the reason I love it so much is because of what it says about love. The quote I put in is a father talking to his daughter and telling her the type of love he wants her to find. In another scene he talks about the first time he saw his wife, he remembered exactly what she was wearing and everything. It is not often these days that movies talk about love the way this one does. That you have to be open to love and not be afraid to get hurt.Another quote talks about how with love you know the worst thing about the other person and it doesn't matter. If you haven't seen it you should and if you have you should watch it again. It really is great and I highly recommend it. Remember..."You never know, lightning could strike."
