Why is love blind ?

My all time fav FWD mail.)
Love is blind. If u want to know why then read this:

A long time ago, before the world was created and humans set foot on it, God had put all the human "qualities" in a separate room. Since all the qualities were bored they decided to play hide & seek
."Madness" was one of the qualities and he shouted: "I want to count, I want to count!" And since nobody was crazy enough to want to seek "Madness", all the other qualities agreed. So "Madness" leaned against a tree and started to count: "One, two, three..." As "Madness" counted, the qualities went hiding. "Reason" hid in a pile of garbage..
"Lie " said that it would hide under a stone, but hid at the bottom of the lake. And Madness continued to count "... seventy nine, eighty, eighty one..."
By this time, all the qualities were already hidden-except "Love ". For stupid as "Love" is, he could not decide where to hide. And this should not surprise us, because we all know how difficult it is to hide "Love"."Madness": "...ninety five, ninety six, ninety seven..." Just when "Madness"got to one hundred........."Love" jumped into a rose bush where he hid.
Madness turned around and shouted: "I'm coming, I'm coming!" As Madness turned around, "Laziness" was the first to be found, because "Laziness" wastoo lazy to hide."Madness" searched madly and found "Lie" at the bottom of the lake. One by one, Madness found them all - except Love.Madness was getting desperate, unable to find Love.
Envious of Love, "Envy" whispered to "Madness ": "You only need to find Love, and Love is hiding in the rose bush.""Madness" Jumped on the rose bush and he heard loud cry. The thorns in the bush had pierced Love's eyes.
Hearing the commotion God came into the room and saw what had happened. He got very angry and cursed "Madness" and said since "Love" has become blind because of u.....u shall always be with him"And so it came about that from that day on, Love is blind and is always accompanied by Madness.

Hello di,
nice to know u all are doing well enough :)
Yes I do know why people fwd mails so I am never tired of them (except for deleting the familiar ones :P)

Thats not fair of you to NOT share suchaa lovely poem for a month :O Plss be less concious next time and just share it with us whatever you write!!
Anyways its strange to see soo many people out there who didn't knew suchaa nice thing was penned before [@khandu ask didi to share more of her forwards/her own stuff with us, start an opinion poll :P]

And thats why I thot may be I'll share something with you di, a frnd of mine shared it with me, its her most favorite piece, called Don't Quit:
~~~~~~~~~~~
When things go wrong,
As they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the cloud of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the flight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit

bye then
have a nice time

PS: guess u didn't found ur reply to my comment appear quickly on the page so u posted ur reply 2 times :D Same thing happened with me last time I commented on you wanting a digital dictionary- i mistakenly commented 3 times :( Sorry about that di.
