Life isn’t happily ever after and golden sunsets and shit like that. 
It’s work. 
The person you love is rarely worthy of how big your love is. 
Because no one is worthy of that and maybe no one deserves the burden of it, either. 
You’ll be let down. You’ll be disappointed and have your trust broken 
and have a lot of real sucky days. 
You lose more than you win. You hate the person you love as much as you love him. 
But, shit, you roll up your sleeves and work because that’s what growing older is.

Dennis Lehane


  1. Sometimes your big love for somebody is just an equal lack of attention to other things. Some of them happen to be the sacred ones. So when somebody tells me about his/her big love for a person, I am more interested in the things that person ignores in his/her life. After that scrutiny, I should be able to tell how valuable that love is. Because the love for a human without the love for the divine is almost, if not certainly, pitiful.

    1. still, you cannot measure love . love is. if you lack attention in other aspects of your life it's not because you focus on one thing only.. depends on the person, there are many kinds of love -egoistic affection, self-centered, the giving love, without expectations, the sacred one dedicated to God, etc... we are not here to judge nor to analyze what other think of love. it's their own way of understanding things- everything comes from the divine

    2. What I want to emphasize is that we should give our best to our Creator. And that includes our love, energy and intelligence. It is not right to put God on the second place. It seems that He must always wait for us to get in the mood to pray, or to finish some meaningless job or to stop listening to somebody else. He, the fountain of all true and infinite love, waits for our words and love that we bestow so easily upon others but Him. This is not right.
