Quotes

Some of the quotes which I came across while reading/travelling/surfing/chatting. Thought might want to list a few of them down. I kept them in my Palm for some times already by now.

“Life is not measured by the number of breath we take but by the moments that take our breath away.”

“Love is a temporary madness.It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides.And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not promulgation of promises of eternal passion. This is just being ‘in love’ which any of us can convince ourselves we are.”

“Love itself is what is left over when being in love has been burned away and this is both an art and an unfortunate accident. Your mother & I had it,we had roots that grew towards each other undeground, when all the pretty blossom that had fallen from our branches,we found hat we were one tree & not two.”
-Captain Corelli’s Mandolin-

“It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. who matter”

All of these quotes I found in a diner in Australia.
