Love is a verb

“My wife and I just don’t have the same feelings for each other we used to have.

I guess I just don’t love her anymore and she doesn’t love me.

What can i do?”
“The feeling isn’t there anymore?” I asked.
“That’s right,” he reaffirmed. “And we have three children we’re really concerned about. What do you suggest?”
“love her,” I replied.
“I told you, the feeling just isn’t there anymore.”
“Love her.”
“You don’t understand. the feeling of love just isn’t there.”
“Then love her. If the feeling isn’t there, that’s a good reason to love her.”
“But how do you love when you don’t love?” 

“My friend , love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is a fruit of love, the verb.

So love her.

Serve her.

Sacrifice.

Listen to her.

Empathize.

Appreciate.

Affirm her.

Are you willing to do that?”

Theme behind the Emotion

“A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction.

It should be a progression of moods and feelings.

The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later”.
