My 17 rules of love inspired by Shamsi Tabrizi
Elif Shafak wrote a brilliant book on the friendship between Tabrizi and Rumi called The Forty Rules of Love. This is much much less significant…
- There are different kinds of love. Don’t confuse them even as they spiral into one.
- If the song talks about love but actually refers to sex, then it’s a crap song.
- Love can change anything but sometimes tough problems require tough love.
- Love isn’t easy. It will make you lose weight.
- Love is a force of attraction, like gravity. Or maybe even a black hole!
- Love is enduring and will outlast everything you can ever imagine.
- In the end, everything succumbs to love but you will need lots of patience.
- Love does not need you to believe. It’s stubborn like that.
- Love is tricky. It sidesteps any analysis.
- Love does not discriminate, it makes itself at home anywhere.
- Love swallows hatred and spits it out like the sun does with hydrogen.
- Love has no sense of occasion. It’s the ultimate gatecrasher.
- Love couldn’t care less about your principles.
- Love always hits where it hurts most.
- Love will leak out of any sealed container you wish to bury it in.
- Love is hard of hearing especially when approached with reason.
- Whatever you think you know about love will always just be a drop in the ocean.
