Love Quote #4
"We have common cause against the night...Why love the woman who is your wife? Her nose breathes the air of a world that I know; therefore I love that nose. Her ears hear the music I might sing half the night through; therefore I love her ears. Her eyes delight in seasons of the land; and so I love those eyes. Her tongue knows quince, peach, chokecherry, mint and lime; I love to hear it speaking. Because her flesh knows heat, cold, affliction, I know fire, snow, and pain...We love what we know, we love what we are. Common cause, common cause, common cause of mouth, eye, ear, tongue, hand, nose, flesh, heart, and soul."
Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes (1962), p. 145.
Alright so, this one is a tad bit long, I know. But, if you have the space to fill, this is a quote that has incredible depth and invokes the senses that come with love, I highly recommend this one.
