Love byte # 23 - Beauty of Love


This passage , the author of which is unknown is unarguably one of the most riveting and touching pieces I've read and no sooner did I read it , than I wanted to share it with you all .. so here it goes ..

The question is asked, " Is there anything more beautiful in life than a young couple clasping hands and pure hearts in the path of marriage ? Can there anything more beautiful than young love ? "
And the answer is given, " Yes, there is a more beautiful thing. It is the spectacle of an old man and an old woman finishing their journey together on that path. Their hands are gnarled but still clasped , their faces are seamed but still radiant , their hearts are physically bowed and tired , but still strong with love and devotion for one another . Yes , there is a more beautiful thing than young love . Old Love. "

Love is therefore , what stands the test of time ... Wouldn't you agree ?

  5. Old love is better than young love, I agree. I once took care of a husband and wife in a nursing home. They were truly amazing people.

  6. Totally agree...first of all I love this pic you put up. Second, yes, I get teary eyes when I see an old woman and an old man holding hands and walking through life and love together. Just the other day I saw two...probably in their 80s. Absolutely wonderful and soooo cute! :)

  8. 100% true!
    Love at first sight is easy to understand..
    But its when two people who have been looking at each other for a lifetime, that it becomes a miracle :)
