TrUe LoVe

"A true act of love, unlike imaginary love, is hard and forbidding. Imaginary love yearns for an immediate heroic act that is achieved quickly and seen by everyone. People may actually reach a point where they are willing to sacrifice their lives, as long as the ordeal doesnt last too long, is quickly over--just like on stage, with the public watching and admiring. A true act of love, on the other hand, requires hard work and patience, and, for some, it is a whole way of life." ~Fyodor Dostoevsky,

2 things:

I do think there is a difference between love and true love. But i wouldnt go as far as to call it imaginary love.

this "imaginary love" is the thing that grows to become true love.

that is an amazing quote nonetheless
