"Shall we compare our hearts to a garden - with beautiful blooms, straggling weeds,
swooping birds and sunshine, rain -
and most importantly, seeds.
~~ Grey Livingston
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . . And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
~~ 1 Corinthians 13: 4-13
"The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread."
~~ Mother Teresa
"Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind."
~~ William Shakespeare
"Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new."
~~ Ursula K. Le Guin
