Quote 3

They say that opposites attract… The trouble is, between attraction and understanding there can be a very great distance. Too great for any one individual, no matter how strong and powerful, to cross on her or his own. It is a distance which must be crossed by both, together. How long this takes is not important. What matters is that the journey commence in the first place, that the parties involved move steadily toward one another until, at long last, each is safe in the other’s outstretched arms.

I think this is a fairly good description of what love is. It is not about feeling or attraction. Love is a verb. It’s action. Loving is about putting effort, making sacrifices, understanding, and continuously caring.
