— Wellness — 11 Beautiful Love Quotes By Rumi August 16, 2017 Close your eyes, fall in love, stay there. Love risks everything and asks for nothing. I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away. You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens. I will be waiting here… For your silence to break, for your soul to shake, for your love to wake. Be foolishly in love, because love is all there is. Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends. You are the road of love, and at the end my home. The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along. I choose to love you in silence, for in silence I find no rejection. I choose to love you in loneliness, for in loneliness no one owns you but me. I choose to adore you from a distance, for distance will shield me from pain. I choose to kiss you in the wind, for the wind is gentler than my lips. I choose to hold you in my dreams, for in my dreams, you have no end. Love is not an emotion, it is your very existence.
