Wedding Readings from “CAPTAIN CORELLI’S MANDOLIN”

“Love is temporary madness, it erupts like

volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a

decision. you have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because

that is what love is.

 

Love is not breathlessness, it is not

excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion.

That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.

 

Those that truly love have roots

That grow towards each other underground, and, when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”

 

Louis de Bernieres
