The Difference Between Romance and Love

Marjorie Holmes


"Romance is seeking perfection;
Love is forgiving faults.

Romance is flying;
Love is a safe landing.

Romance is the anguish of waiting
for the phone to ring to bring you a voice
that will utter endearments;
Love is the anguish of waiting for a call
that will assure you someone else
is happy and safe.

Romance is eager, striving always
to appear attractive for each other;

Love is two people who find beauty
in each other no matter how they look."
