Unrequited Love may pave your way to Greatness – The Love-story of Pope Francis.

I quote from Shafali’s Caricatures and Cartoons

Pope Francis’s unrequited Love

Amalia Damonte who still lives in the same house where she grew up (at 555 Membranilla Street in the Flores district of Buenos Aires (the capital of Argentina,)) was proposed to by a young boy called Jorge Bergoglio. He was 12 and she was 13…and she is the reason why Jorge Bergoglio is Pope Francis now. Had she not turned down his proposal, he wouldn’t have embraced priesthood – for his letter told her in no uncertain terms – that if she didn’t agree to become his wife, he’d become a priest. He was quite serious about the matter as she’s got it in black and white…or whatever was the color of the ink that Jorge favored when he was young.

So…you see now. There’s a woman behind every successful man…even the Pope :)

Now, he is the leader of 1.2 Billion Catholics world-wide.

This love-story had an end different from what lovers hope for, yet it has a great end. Sometimes, your love isn’t returned for a reason. Either fate has other, higher-order plans for you, or the object-of-your-affection knows something that you don’t…something that you are better off not knowing. Every once in a while, your love may not be returned, because returning your love could do more harm than good to you – and so that love for you is forever kept under lock and key. When this happens to you, don’t take it as an affront to your dignity, don’t assume that your love was not returned because there was a fault with you – it could be that your love-interest realizes that he or she won’t measure up to you – or perhaps that you were meant for greater things 🙂

On the other hand,

it’s a good idea to do your best before you decide to call it quits. For instance, you must send all the love letters that you can and try to best to beat your greedy, unethical rival in the game of love. Girls, are you game?

Love is all you need – a song by John Lennon

John Lennon of the Beatles sung this timeless song on June 25, 1967 – more than half a century ago. The message is clear. Love is omnipotent. It has the potential to make a difference to you life. While the lyrics appear to be somewhat twisty to me (and perhaps the mystery of its actual meaning gives the song its aura,) I believe its about love changing everything. “There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done” (for me it translates to “you can’t achieve the impossible”,) and then “but you can learn how to play the game. It’s easy…all you need is love.” (my interpretation is “but perhaps you can learn to achieve the impossible…if only you had love.”

Here are those meaningful lyrics. Let me know what they mean to you 🙂

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy

Nothing you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Nothing you can know that isn’t known
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
It’s easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

I am not adding the rest of it here. You can find the complete lyrics of “All you Need is Love” here.

You want to send him a message that tells him that he is the one for you?
You want to tell her how much she means to you?

You wonder how you must do it – you want to find out a way to reach out spontaneously…any time, all the time. You want to think about your sweetheart, when you are traveling in the metro, when you are standing on the bus-stand waiting for the bus, even when you are together.

You wonder how they must’ve expressed their loved and wooed their sweethearts in the days gone by. In the days when there was no email or even mailmen to deliver your cards and flowers; and you wonder how it would’ve been if you had been a prince or a princess, and fallen in love.

You wonder how it must feel to have a rival in love, and then to beat him or her. You have an iPad and you want to play a game of love that isn’t old wine in new bottle; and that is romantic to the core. You want to play a game that has been created by two gremlins in love – who have built every little detail of a game with a loving touch and a caring thought.

5 Best Love-Quotes – but nothing sums up the bliss of being in Love.

Here are Five Love-Quotes that make a lot of sense. So if you are in love, read, understand, interpret, and enjoy 🙂

”All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” – Charles M. Schulz

Absolutely Mr. Schulz! I won’t mind a little chocolate too…along with some flowers and a promise of forever love 🙂

“Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.” – Mark Twain

I have a feeling that Mark Twain must’ve said this (or written it) in a moment of amazing lucidity.

”There is a place you can touch a woman that will drive her crazy. Her heart.” – Melanie Griffith

It begins funny, and makes you wonder what Ms. Griffith could be driving at. I guess this was her motive, but then what she said makes perfect sense.

“The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

Yes, and love is best among those beautiful things.

“When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be.” – Leo Tolstoy

And when you love someone even more, you’ll help them overcome their short-comings without ever becoming critical. Now that’s the tough part 🙂

End Note:

When you are in love, you desire someone, and then you desire someone to desire you back. It’s quite simple actually, but every once in a while, a rival-in-love tries to throw a spanner in the works. (Yes, I am talking about the Valentine’s Day game “My Love My Valentine.” If you are in love and if you own an iPad, do click this link and check it out – it’s a magical game – an experience created for you by two souls who’ve been in love forever.
