Hmmm…“Love is friendship set on fire” – Jeremy Taylor said it first in the 1600’s.
Then there is the poem written by Laura Hendricks:
“Love is friendship caught fire; it is quiet, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection, and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, hopes for the future, and does not brood over the past. It is the day-in and day-out chronicles of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories, and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you do not have it, no matter what else there is, it is not enough.”
Bruce Lee said:
“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. ”
I just recently watched yet again the movie, “The Perfect Man” and when Adam says, “ I heard once that love is friendship on fire. That’s how I feel about you”…I melt…
Then I heard this song:
My spin: Love is friendship set on the fire of passion….♥
