“Since the invention of the kiss, there have been only five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind.”The Princess Bride
Being a romantic at heart, I love The Princess Bride’s movie. Even though the setting is not in our times and it can be seen as over the top, the basic concept of love and the idea of true love is a good one and one that I share. The whole movie is based on love and to what end love will drive a person to be with another person. When two people have a genuine love for each other, they will do anything for each other. They will try to grow and learn and be the best version of themselves for the other. That is if it is a two-sided true love, which I have spoken about before in another blog.
But I like to think this quote is beautiful because there is no better moment between two people who love each other than when they kiss. Kissing can be magical as well as being awful. But a true love kiss is one for the ages and a sight so unseen these days. These days people kiss, and yes, it can be great, but nothing will ever compare to the kiss of someone you love and who loves you. Something magical happens when the two people who love each other kiss.
I like this quote because it reminds us that love is not just about sex and the relationship, but the deeper connection that is love. Love ties us all together, and when two people find their person, it is the best thing in the world.
