Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Love....some favourite quotes that hold truth for me right now...

We sat side by side in the morning light and looked out at the future together.

Brian Andres

Is a life worth living, without no one to love and to be loved in return?

Zena Joy Pym

It is with true love as it is with ghosts; everyone talks about it, but few have seen it.

Francois De La Rochefoucauld

Love at first sight is possible, but it pays to take a second look.


Love is the only kind of fire which is never covered by insurance.


Two separate, distinct personalities, not separate at all, but inextricably bound, soul and body and mind, to each other, how did we get so far apart so fast?

Judith Guest

If love is shelter, I'm going to walk in the rain.

Source Unknown

Love is like a game of chess: One false move and you're mated.


Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists.... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

Erich Fromm

Indifference is the strongest force in the universe. It makes everything it touches meaningless. Love and hate don't stand a chance against it.

Joan Vinge

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.

Erica Jong
1942-, American Author

I miss you even more than I could have believed; and I was prepared to miss you a good deal.

Vita Sackville-West

when you are always on my mind and my heart hurts when you are gone what is it that i feel, if it is not love

naomi kay

When a heart finds another, what's a cloud more or less in the sky?

Wolf and Page

The chemist who can extract from his heart's elements, compassion, respect, longing, patience, regret, surprise, and forgiveness and compound them into one can create that atom which is called love.

Kahlil Gibran
1883-1931, Lebanese Poet, Novelist

God made many puzzle pieces, but only those two 'cut out' for each other, can fit together to create a perfect and beautiful picture.

Jessica Cochran

Pleasure of love lasts but a moment, Pain of love lasts a lifetime.

Jean Pierre Claris De Florian

This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love; the more they give, the more they possess.

Rainer Maria Rilke
1875-1926, German Poet

We have to realize that we are as deeply afraid to live and to love as we are to die.

Ronald David Laing

A heart that loves is always young.

Greek Proverb

The pain of love is the pain of being alive. It is a perpetual wound.

Maureen Duffy

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and blows up the bonfire.

Francois de La Rouchefoucauld

"Fooled around and fell in love"...I always liked that one...or
"Love has taken, taken its toll, love has taken its toll"

But that all sounds so cynical... here...I like this better...
I like it enough I think I'll post it.
"Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absent-minded.
Someone sober will worry about events going badly.
Let the lover be."
