The other day i was reading one of the post at Phoenix's blog and she asked, so when do you really know it's love??? is it when the person is not around you anymore? or when he/she is there? I did gave her a reply on my comment, something i felt at that moment, but later while i was free i was thinking upon it and actually got lost myself in the basic definition of love. Then i came across an extract from the Captain Corelli's Madolin and wow how truely described...

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become 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 promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are."

Sigh***

That is so very true. What will last is do you really like the same things, values, virtues goals in life that will let it go the distance and smaller eruptions can happen throughout.
