Today my topic is simple, My favorite quote, most people probably would choose something that everyone knows. Something funny, witty, intelligent, something biblical, something that the world knows and has been shared a million times. I'm different. I'm sure lots of people know my quote, know who said it, and know the context it was said in... but most wont. To me this quote is simple and beautiful and it is one of the most memorable quotes that I have ever read. Every single time I read it I get goosebumps.
"This morning, with her, having coffee..." - Johnny Cash
was his answer when he was asked for his definition of paradise. That
was his paradise. Something that was so mundane, so normal, was his
paradise. He fought for that paradise. That paradise never gave up on
him. She loved him unconditionally. Without judgement, just love. Can
So many people take love for granted.
Love, true love, should be cherished. I may be old fashioned, or maybe
I'm just a fool for love, but I believe that everyone has that one love
that they are supposed to find and cherish. Their paradise. I do not
think that many people want to take the time to find that paradise. They
are too comfortable jumping fences when the grass looks greener on that
side, not realizing that maybe if they watered the grass on this side
it would be just as green...
I'm not stupid or crazy, I
know the story of Johnny and June. He was a drunk and a junkie who was
married when they met and fell in love. He was no angel. She just loved
him through it. She herself was no angel, she had been married and
divorced. He was arrested numerous times. She loved him anyways. She did
not fall in love with him right away like he did her. She learned to
love him despite his many flaws that would have driven most women away.
She learned to love him unconditionally. Forever.
