Greatest Love Stories (i.e. the Famous R&J) tell us that true love lasts forever, 'cos you won't get to experience it for long. Either
one has to live with the torture of lost love, or the lovebirds have to rot together in their graveyard.

Fables and stories remind us of the 'Rosebud Syndrome' - that riches bring about loneliness - but are the poor really happy ?
If you want money and power, you've gotta dedicate every second of your life to work and your private/lovelife gets flushed down to the sewers.

Classical Hollywood Fairy Tales (Beauty & the Beast etc etc) narrates the utopian world of wealth, happiness, beauty and love, and they live happily ever after. Regardless of whether you are going to heaven or hell 'cos they ain't have no religion (or faith or truth..)?

So heaven or hell? A love that's spectacular like the fireworks in the sky ( they never last ) or the little rugged tiny bear that stays by your side till you die ( you know stuff toys dun really hug back )? Throwing your whole life away for what you really want or wasting your whole life laughing and partying ?

There there baby. Remember, balance, like the yin and the yang...

Jack of all trades and master of none. Drink to contradictions and conundrums, hopes and dreams, sorrow and tears, love and rejections - then living will be real and whole.
 
 
 
 
 
 
this is splendidly written, im aching to say something (in response to subject matter) but find myself not knowing what it is
I wrote this, partly out of boredom, partly out of insecurity blah blah..

and I came back to where I come from. I have nothing to say as well. Haha thanks anyway. =)
The Rosebud syndrome came from "Citizen Kane".

Methinks.

The rosebud syndrome was originally derived from Citizen Kane, which is a story, and it became widely used after words in many articles/stories.
And it has evolved soooo very much.

*winks*
Well said.
Let's toast to that.

More vodka?
i quit alcohol!!!!

play mj lar ... when i come back in nov.. haha
It is a good read, and is really well written.

It's things like this that remind me how unpolished i am.
there.. most of us are unpolished ... i think the beauty of life is not only enjoying the highs.. but experiencing the downs as well.. =)
I think "true love" is different from "tragic love". You've heard of those couples who live to ripe old age, and because one dies 1st, the other dies less than a year later. Or you know...I still think it's awfully touching when you see this old old lady/man remembering their spouse and getting all sentimental.

"Tragic love" is true only because something happened to keep it at that ever-perfect situation forever.

and while I don't think the poor are neccessarily happy, I don't think all rich couples go through the Citizen Kane technique either. You know...all those "behind every powerful man is a powerful woman" stories...ah well, my 2c worth/
that's true. then again there is never a correct definition of erm.. love?
