Love. Love. Love!

Just another random day at work, informing my boss of my theory on the effects that porn has on men and romantic comedies have on women, if you haven’t heard it, you should I’m convinced it will be in psychology books real soon.

Anyways he started talking about his wife, their wedding and this amazing passage they had a friend read. Later he printed it out for me and I must share it with you, it’s pretty amazing stuff.

Captain Corelli’s Mandolin
Louis de Bernieres

Love is a temporary madness,
it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides.
And when it subsides you have to make a decision.
You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together
that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.
Because this is what love is.
Love is not breathlessness,
it is not excitement,
it is not the promulgation of eternal passion.
That is just being “in love” which any fool can do.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away,
and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.
Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground,
and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches,
they find that they are one tree and not two.

Agree? Disagree? What are your thoughts?
