"Share Love Generously" - some love quotes and links for you today

Love easily confuses us because it is always in flux

between illusion and substance,

between memory and wish,

between contentment and need.

- unknown

To love is not a passive thing.

To love is active voice.

When I love, I do something, I function, I give.

- Bernard Iddings Bell

The art of love . . . is largely the art of persistence.

- Albert Ellis

Love never dies a natural death.

It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source.

It dies of blindness and errors and betrayels.

It dies of illness and wounds;

it dies of weariness, or witherings, of tarnishings.

- Anais Nin

Love and Hate are not opposites.

The opposite of Love is Indifference.

- A.S. Neill

For none of us can ever express the exact measure

of his needs, or his thoughts, or his sorrows;

and human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to,

while we long to make music that will melt the stars.

- Gustave Flaubert

(go read here about an idea of changing Valentine's Day from a lover's holiday to a Day of Generosity.

And read here about loving imperfect, tattered and torn loves. I love both of those posts and had to share.)

(and I apologize profusely for not linking to the sites where I found these images. I snagged them off Pinterest, of course. They're not mine. My face has been burning and shooting pain today, so I just wanted to get this posted and be done. Sorry.)

I mentioned this to Sophia when she kept telling me about her friend who kept talking about hating a certain boy. She told the friend and that ended the hate talk speedy quick.:)
