Quotes and Music about Love

Please read the meaning about the song written by Joe Hill to his wife. See how beautiful they are; forty years of love is gorgeous.


Listening for Love
By Jayne Fisher

There are times when we are timid and shy about expressing the love we feel. For fear of embarrassing the other person, or ourselves, we hesitate to say the actual words.I love you. So we try to communicate the idea in other words. We say take care or don't drive too fast or be good.

But really, these are just other ways of saying I love you. You are important to me, I care what happens to you, and I dont want you to get hurt all mean I love you. We are sometimes very strange people. The only thing we want to say, and the one thing that we should say, is the one thing we don't say. And yet because the feeling is so real, and the need to say it is so strong, we are driven to use other words and signs to say what we really mean. And many times the meaning never gets communicated at all and the other person is left feeling unloved and unwanted.

Therefore, I believe we have to listen for love in the words that people are saying to us. Sometimes the explicit words are necessary, but more often, the manner of saying things is even more important. A joyous insult carries more affection and love within the sentiments, which are expressed insincerely. An impulsive hug says I love you even though the words might be saying something very different.

Any expression of a person's concern for another says I love you. Sometimes the expression is clumsy, sometimes even cruel. Sometimes we must look and listen very intently for the love that it contains.

We say I love you in many ways - with birthday gifts, and little notes, with smiles and sometimes with tears. Sometimes we show our love by just keeping quiet and not saying a word, at other times by speaking out, even harshly. We show our love sometimes by impulsiveness.

Many times we have to show our love by forgiving someone who has not listened to the love we have tried to express. The problem is listening for love is that we don't always understand the language of love, which the other person is using. A girl may use tears or emotions to say what she wants to say, and her boyfriend may not understand her because he expects her to be talking his language.

We have to force ourselves to really listen for love. The problem with our world is that people rarely listen to each other. They hear the words, but they don't listen to the actions that accompany the words or the expression on the face. Or people listen only for rejection or misunderstanding. They do not see the love that is there just beneath the surface, even if the words are angry.

Simon and Garfunkel wrote that very haunting song, The Sound of Silence . It goes: Ten thousand people, maybe more. People talking without speaking; people hearing without listening; people writing songs that voices never shared, because no one dared disturb the sound of silence... It is a terrifying picture of our modern world, a world without communication and without love.

We have to listen for love in those around us. If we listen intently we will discover that we are a lot more loved than we realise.
Just listen!

When Joe sent this song and a note, my heart stopped for a beat. Love like this is so precious and rare. After forty years he still adores his wife and she him; not like an old married couple, but a couple still madly in love. Many words are written on the subject, but if you’ve found love this deep, please send a story. This makes me cry of HOPE. My mother and father, her sister and husband, my grandparents, and my cousins seem to know what this is. Do they know, everyday, how blessed they are? We may find love, but do we stay “In love” forever.


Because love is:

Author: The Bible: 1 Corinthians 13:4

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

 

Ruth Sixteen-The music on this page.

What kind of a title is that for a love song you are probably asking? Here's the story. When my wife and I wed some 40 years ago, we recited a Bible passage for our joint vows. Ruth 1:16-17 says,"Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die and there I will be buried. Thus may the Lord do to me, and worse, if anything but death parts you and me" In Feb. 11 for Valentine's Day I wrote this song for my wife and based the lyrics on this passage, hence Ruth Sixteen.

JOE HILL AND HIS WIFE- MUSIC'S COMPOSER

Bryan Adams's Everything I do
“There's no love - like your love
And no other - could give more love
There's nowhere - unless you're there
All the time - all the way”

 

Lionel Richie's Hello
“I've been alone with you inside my mind
And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door
Hello, is it me you're looking for?”


Chicago's You're the Inspiration
“You know our love was meant to be
The kind of love that lasts forever
And I want you here with me
From tonight until the end of time
You should know, everywhere I go
You're always on my mind, in my heart”

When Mozart was composing at the end of the eighteenth century, the city of Vienna was so quiet that fire alarms could be given verbally, by a shouting watchman mounted on top of St. Stefan’s Cathedral. In twentieth-century society, the noise level is such that it keeps knocking our bodies out of tune and out of their natural rhythms. This ever-increasing assault of sound upon our ears, minds, and bodies adds to the stress load of civilized beings trying to live in a highly complex environment.
Author: Steve Halpem

Love Quotes Pictures

 


When you love someone,
And you love them with your heart,
It never disappears,
When you're apart.
And when you love someone
And you've done all you can do,
You set them free,
And if that love was true...
When you love someone
It will all come back to you.
- From 'Forget Paris'.

We'll leave the world behind us”
