#Quote Time by Kate Winslet!

Attention please, it’s QUOTE TIME! This time I got my inspiration from one of my favorite movies of all time “The Holiday“. Yesterday I was having a fever and feeling bored out of my mind so I did the usual routine to this case and start randomly scanning the old movies in my computer ( of course most of them are silly comedy/romance movies.. I know I know, I’m a very emotional person :p ) and last night I watched the Holiday so here’s an excerpt that I adore and of course extremely relate to 😉 iris-kate-winslet-the-holiday-Favim.com-156479_large Iris: I’ve found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said “Journeys end in lovers meeting.” What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said “love is blind”. Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night. And then, there’s another kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? tumblr_mu5ecsHOh91rmisnuo1_500 We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space! Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life! The worst Christmas’, the worst Birthday’s, New Years Eve’s brought in by tears and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of my life. All because I’ve been cursed by being in love with a man who does not and will not love me back. Oh god, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat thickening! Absolutely can’t swallow! All the usual symptoms.” And as usual here’s a glimpse of hope after that depressing quote:)

“Music is only a mystery to people who want it explained. Music and love are the same.”
