How do you know you’re in love?

  • —COMMON: Man, I know I’m in love when I think about her a lot and I’m finding ways to get to that person. Even though I gotta work, even though I gotta take care of other responsibilities, I’m like yo, when am I gonna fly out and see that person? I look forward to seeing them.
  • —KENDRICK LAMAR: How do you know you’re in love? When your heart feels it instead of your mind and your penis don’t. You know, it’s deeper than that… That’s when you know.
  • —PETE ROCK: Oh man you feel it right here, *touches heart*, right there, it’s like cupid’s shooting you in the heart, that shit’s just BOOW! Lots of people say they don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do, it’s happened to me.
  • —A$AP ROCKY: You know you in love cuz you don’t want nobody else but that person. You know, that’s how you know for sure. Like you could see a million other bad bitches, but you know, but it don’t even matter, you stuck.
  • —BIG BOI: Your heart flutters a little bit, you like to kiss on the mouth a lot, your neck get hot when you kiss on the mouth, that type of stuff. Stuff like that, yea.
  • —QUESTLOVE: I THINK WHEN THAT PERSON CONSUMES YOU.

It’s ok to miss them from time to time. Just remember why you left. Things that sometimes warm the heart can also poison the spirit.

"قلب على قلب"

In Arabic, we say Qalb 3ala Qalb, which roughly translates to “hearts in sync”. In essence, it’s talking about telepathy, and the unspoken words, and how they are not necessary in order to bond. What I love about it most is that it isn’t restrictive to romantic love, but instead it is open to any love at all. You would say it when you bump into someone you adore unexpectedly, at the grocery store maybe, or in the middle of traffic. Or even when you say something at the same time as someone else. The idea is that these things happen because your hearts are connected, and that somewhere along this telepathic journey, they bumped into, or brushed past one another, and that, because they were meant to meet, they always, always will. They will always find a way to each other. That’s comforting to me.  (via thelittlephilosopher)
