Like Yen and Yang

Love…
…is constantly varying and filled with ‘ups’ contrasted with ‘downs’. The high times strengthen for the low times. The good times train the heart and the difficult ones teach the mind. In balance like yen and yang, love has its best chance of survival.

British novelist and poet Anne Bronte
He who
dares not
grasp the
thorn
Should never
crave
the rose.
