Love Defies Time

This is from the season (likely series) finale of NUMB3RS. Larry spoke these words as the preface to the "I do" and exchange of rings for Charlie and Amita. Made me cry.
We've been talking here about the forces that bind the universe. But what binds humans? Love. Powerful in small spaces, yet with profound effect on distance. Love defies time, outliving both its source and its object. Love is faster than light, for light requires time in order to travel through space. But love reaches its object instantaneously. Love journeys forever, into infinity.
Currently feeling: touched


  1. Erin:

    Thanks so much for capturing this wonderfully deep thought word-for-word. I did a Google Search immediately after I heard it on NUMBERS ---and that search was unavailing until now.

    I too was very, very touched by this sentiment --- including most especially the thought that love outlives both its SOURCE and its OBJECT. I'd never thought of it in this way. It's so succinct and apt. Truth. So thanks for providing this for me. I'll keep this for life.


  2. i did the same google search ;))
