A false enchantment can all too easily last a lifetime.
W. H. Auden
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet
to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has
the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
St. Augustine 354-430,
Numidian-born Bishop of Hippo, Theologian
Love, and do what you like.
Love is the beauty of the soul.
God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily
I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed
with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom
fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Marcus Aurelius 121-80 AD,
Roman Emperor, Philosopher
Not all of us have to possess earthshaking talent. Just common sense and
love will do.
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real
knowledge and all discernment.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.
A temporary insanity curable by marriage.
Ambrose Bierce 1842-1914,
