• Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
• You call it madness, but I call it love.
• We can only learn to love by loving.
• A life lived in love will never be dull.
• Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
• All you need is love.
• True love stories never have endings.
When I think of this ,I feel so sad but the fact is that that’s life ,there will always be that time when you have to leave the people you called your family ,that time when tears flood your heart but you have to keep a smile on your face, that time when you feel you need to be looking at them but you can’t, that time when you have to painfully say goodbye to the people who made you feel noticed in place that time when you have to pretend to be strong. The same is happening to me now but allow me pray for you as you pray for me.

I shuddered and I lost consciousness. The usual procedure was not follo...
