Love Story!

"Love means not ever having to say you're sorry!"

- Love Story by Erich Segal

My all time favourite book, I have read it more than 10 times and cried all the times while reading this book. It is not just a book, It is an emotion, a feeling, a story told close to home, a story that tugs at your heart and makes you believe that, yes, it exists, that kind of love does exist. It is not over romanticised, the characters in the book are not unrealistic, they are in fact you! Oliver & Jenny have made me laugh, made me sad, made me angry when they fought, hopeful when they patched up & cry when Jenny was gone when Oliver cried in his father's arms.

These last lines from the book are etched in my memory:

"Not knowing why, I repeated what I had long ago learned from the beautiful girl now dead.

'Love means not ever having to say you're sorry.'

And then I did what I had never done in his presence, much less in his arms. I cried."

The vulnerability, the sadness, the breaking of heart, it all felt real in these lines and this book!

Life is as simple as we want it to be & as complicated as we make it!
