if you know what it means

This collection of portraits of long-married couples is really lovely:

From Time: “In search of what makes love last, photographer Lauren Fleishman seeks out couples who know a thing or two on the subject: all of the pairs she interviewed have been married for fifty years or more.”

“Sometimes we think we love when we don’t love. A lot of people say they are in love but really we were young and we really didn’t know what love was all about. But afterward we found out what love was! Love is sharing with one another. Don’t care what you have you share what you have. And be willing to give. Another thing I tell people now is that you have to be able to bend a little bit. Yes, love is a powerful thing. If you know what it means.” – Theauther Love (pictured above with his wife Annie)
