Love was always love, anytime and anyplace

It is what it is.

…they no longer felt like newlyweds, and even less like belated lovers. It was as if they had lept over the arduous calvary of conjugal life and gone straight to the heart of love. They were together in silence like an old married couple wary of life, beyond the pitfalls of passion, beyond the brutal mockery of hope and the phantoms of disillusion: beyond love. For they had lived together long enough to know that love was always love, anytime and anyplace, but it was more solid the closer it came to death.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, from “Love in the Time of Cholera

    aba serious naman to.

    i agree on those that you wrote in bold. lalo na ung “more solid the closer it came to death”. with my lupus i felt like i’ve been through hell and back but i still considered it a blessing because i have seen the unconditional love my husband then boyfriend has for me. kahit na muntik na akong makalbo, nde nya ko iniwan. hehe.

    me says: Amen.
