Celebrating Love

097

I’m getting married this month! And tonight I’m going to a friend’s wedding. Plus, it’s springtime (hooray!!), and I’m seeing lots of “twitterpated” birds and squirrels. Love is in the air!

So I want to celebrate by sharing a few beautiful quotes, gathered from my reading, about love…

Love enjoyed:

“Love, whether newly born, or aroused from a deathlike slumber, must always create a sunshine, filling the heart so full of radiance, that it overflows upon the outward world.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

Love unrequited:

“To love without an echo is the death knell of the soul. Foolishly, the soulless body grows anyway, marches into the future without its nucleus, without its self, bonsaid by this echoless love.” – Susan Richards, Chosen by a Horse

Love in various forms:

“Love, the way I hear it, sometimes flies in and sometimes walks; with this one it runs and with that one it dawdles; it tempers the passions in some; it wounds others; and still others it slays.” – Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

Ah, love!

    “Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
    ― Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

    Congratulations, Sarrah, may you and your husband make each others happiness essential.
