…brings me strength and solace whenever my thoughts are focused in your direction. I doubt less. I hope more. My imagination is richer; inspiration grander. Even the near impossible seems somehow possible.

…is in my heart; a smoldering glow keeps me warmer than occasional leaping flames. Loving in peace is richer than passion alone. Harmony in my heart is healthier than turbulence of a jagged love.
French aristocrat, writer, poet, and aviatorAntoine De Saint-Exupery
And now here
is my secret,
a very simple secret;
it is only with the heart
can see rightly,
what is essential
is invisible to the eye.
…of a parent, child or friend is an act of will, intentional caring and hope for the good of another without expecting something in return. Romantic love at its purest has the same selfless qualities. Such noble adoration is a rare and uncommon treasure.
From the Clever Factory, Inc. book “Sweet Love”
The way you love me
feels like home.
Just the sound of your voice
renews my strength,
as the touch of your hand
settles my soul.
for your open arms,
of who I am,
and this limitless freedom
my heart finds in yours.
…amplifies everything! Good times become better. Heartbreak becomes worse. Happiness becomes more joyful. Abandonment becomes utter grief. When those in love are irresponsible, hearts crash in misery. But when loved ones behave with wisdom, hearts soar with delight.
…brings hope of going forward with another; ageless ahead into time. Love expands horizons, widens dreams and causes the imagination to conjure thoughts a person would almost never think of alone.
…conquers without battle. It overcomes without moving. Love masters without effort. It knows without study. Love inspires without trying. It ‘is’ without attempting to be.
“Whispers of Love” by Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī)
Love whispers to my ear,
“Better to be a prey
than a hunter.
Make yourself My fool.
Stop trying to be the sun
and become a speck!
Dwell at My door
and be homeless.
Don’t pretend to be a candle,
be a moth,
so you may taste
the savor of Life
and know the power
hidden in serving”.
…is the answer to the question: “What is the most powerful force on Earth? Every human and everything he or she does is shaped by love’s abundance or its lack.
From the song “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis And The News
The power of love is a curious thing,
Make a one man weep,
make another man sing.
Change a hawk to a little white dove,
More than a feeling that’s the power of love.
Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl’s dream,
Make a bad one good make a wrong one right
Power of love that keeps you home at night.
You don’t need money, don’t take fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train.
It’s strong and it’s sudden
and it’s cruel sometimes,
But it might just save your life.
That’s the power of love.
