"Sigh"...love this~

"A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears."

-Leo Tolstoy

Have you ever loved someone who shut you out or stopped speaking to you?
Ever shed tears over silence?
Ever wept over words not said?

Sometimes words are all we have. Sometimes we don't need anything more.

I appreciate you when you speak/write to me.
I'm not in love, but I love what you say.

I just wanted to say "thank you"~ and forgive me when I blip out.

-me :)

Words not said, actions not done - I regret things not done not the wrongs I did.

Thank you!

I have to answer yes to all three questions.

Leo Tolstoy was a moron. All women might look the same in the dark, but that doesn't mean they are all the same in the dark.

Then again, Tolstoy might have only known foolish men. I know a lot of guys who married a woman based on her looks, and regretted it by the end of the honeymoon.

"I regeret things NOT done, not the wrongs I did."
Wow Sj...well said- wow-
the more I think those words over, the more they mean to me.
Those are indeed words to live by.

LOL- Why is it you said the women were in the dark? :) Leo didn't say that~ but I'm not going to argue with you about his mental prowess. The first part of the quote was kind of sexist- wasn't it? I'm not sure he meant it that way...maybe he was just making a broad generalization?

In every case though, the men I have fallen in love with- I fell in love because of what they said and did, not because of how they looked.
I guess that was what I loved about the quote- that part was/is true for me.

I do think that a lot of the men I dated were drawn in by my apearance...but hoepfully they remained because of who I was on the inside? I hope so.

Speaking as one with some inside information on the this particular subject :) only an idiot would *not* have stayed around after getting to know your true inner qualities Mayden Fair!

And blessed am I that you saw something in this worthless shell that struck your fancy!
