I came across some lovely phrased words this morning. Every once in a while you read or hear something and it stirs so much truth that the power of that art burns into your brain — into your soul.

“Love that lives in the heart
cannot be terminated by time
Even though the encounter is brief
the impression shall last a lifetime
No one can change the way of
love that lives in the heart

If you have loved,
that is the answer”

There is nothing new expressed in this thought, but it is espressed so well. I wish I could say I had written it. I am not sure who wrote it. It is translated from another language and I can’t help but wonder if it might even be more beautifully stated in
original pre-translated form.

I think it was written by either film director and writer, Yonfan, I guess it doesn’t matter, but isn’t it lovely?

    So true. It sounds familiar, but I can’t pin point who said it…..

    That is a beautiful extract. I think some books and poems that are wonderfully written lose their meaning when translated into english, but this one seems to have a lot of meaning the way it is.
