more About Love
Love is sometimes denied, sometimes mislaid, sometimes unrecognized, but in the end found without regret, and forever treasured.
"You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; in just the same way, you learn to love by loving." ~Anatole France~

"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - myth is more potent than history - dreams are more powerful than facts - hope always triumphs over experience - laughter is the cure for grief - love is stronger than death" ~Robert Fulghum~
What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can necessarily choose to start everything anew. Right now.

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none." ~William Shakespeare~
"It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get." ~Rene Descartes~
"Love is like pi - natural, irrational, and very important." ~Lisa Hoffman~
"Love is like seaweed; even if you have pushed it away, you will not prevent its coming back" ~Nigerian Proverb~

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." ~Lao Tzu~
Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned. The question is, how much of what we have learned is based on illusion? When answering bear in mind that both fight and flight are responses to fear.
"Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses" ~Lao Tzu~
"Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile." ~Franklin P. Jones~
"Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness." ~Bertrand Russell~
"There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved." ~George Sand~
"I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love." ~Mother Teresa~
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." ~Jalal ad-Din Rumi~
What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things, instead of loving things and using people.
"Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words." ~Fr. Jerome Cummings~
"Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says: 'I need you because I love you'" ~Erich Fromm~
"Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable." ~Bruce Lee~
"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." ~Thomas Merton~
"If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don't have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it's not enough." ~Ann Landers~
"Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within." ~James Arthur Baldwin~

It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what is the most painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel.
"Most people have a harder time letting themselves love than finding someone to love them." ~Bill Russell~
