Jeg elsker deg

Ex. “Jeg er glad i deg.”

It is a circumstance which Darcy, of course, would not wish to be generally known, because if it were to get round to the lady’s family, it would be an unpleasant thing.
—  Colonel Fitzwilliam before telling Lizzy about Darcy’s interference in Bingley and Jane’s relationship aka THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE CENTURY
I love your smile, your big bright eyes, your laugh, your cute giggle, your dorky side, your bad side, your mood swings, your potential psycho side, bitchy side and pretty much every everything about you. I just don’t pick one side of you. When I chose you, I pick all parts of you. That’s how much I love you.
—  Ymrac (My Unstable Mental Health)
Nordics as (Gay) Things my Friends and I Have Said
  • Sweden: How many homophobes does it take to change a lightbulb? None 'cause they're afraid of change, even if it makes the world a brighter place.
  • Finland: I dreamt of (OTP part 1) letting off a ray. And (OTP part 2) teaching about plane mirrors and converging and diverging mirrors. The properties of light. It's straight. Not anymore though. It's gay.
  • Norway: I, too, want to teach men the ways of gay and inspire fear.
  • Denmark: Why go single when you could go gaygle?
  • Iceland: I too am a useless gay. We must destroy the heterosexuals.
Genuine love is rarely an emotional space where needs are instantly gratified. To know genuine love we have to invest time and commitment. As John Welwood reminds us in Journey of the Heart: The Path of Conscious Love, ‘dreaming that love will save us, solve all our problems or provide a steady state of bliss or security only keeps us stuck in wishful fantasy, undermining the real power of love–which is to transform us.’ Many people want love to function like a drug, giving them an immediate and sustained high. They want to do nothing, just passively receive the good feeling. In patriarchal culture men are especially inclined to see love as something they should receive without expending effort. More often than not they do not want to do the work that love demands. When the practice of love invites us to enter a place of potential bliss that is at the same time a place of critical awakening and pain, many of us turn our backs on love.

Simon Woods, who plays Bingley, I dyed his hair red for this film. And weirdly, it’s continued to grow red and he resents me deeply for that. He was actually blond. But he should get over it. Do you know what i mean? - Joe Wright
