Emotive



Quote of the day:

We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.
-Fydor Dostoevsky



You cannot say to a stranger- Love me.
Or to a friend- Hate me.

You cannot say to the ticking clock- Less speed.
Or to the winds- More force.

You cannot say to the sun- More warmth.
Or to the rain- Less storm.

You cannot say to the stars-More twinkle.
Or to the moon- Less glow.

...But sometimes we fall in love with strangers.
And fall out of love with friends...

But love should never be forced
...ever.
And time waits for no one...none.

  18. Love cannot be forced. - THIS

    I like the fact that the quote says interest us at first sight because I don't believe there is such a thing as love at first sight.

    (Stating the obvious, I know)
