A Love Longing Thirst | Daily Quote (GR)

“A very small degree of hope is enough to cause the birth of love.”
Stendhal

I don’t know why I always confuse St. Valentine with St. Sebastian, riddled with arrows. I don’t know the particulars of the story, but I know the dangers of love, and when one loves enough there is a hope that can never be quenched, a love longing thirst, riddled with passions, a hope that bears up amid all the cruel circumstances life affords. That is love, or the birth of it, like Tu Pac’s rose slipping through the broken cracks of a ghetto sidewalk.
