… does not spoil or have an expiration date. It may allowed to fade away, be ill-attended or simply fall down forgotten, but it is never useless. Long or short, lasting or temporary, there is nothing more valuable than loving and being loved.
English novelist and poet Emily Brontë (1818-1848)
…that you are a take-charge type of person who does not shrink away from responsibility, even when bearing it is difficult. Your family is lucky to have you. So am I!
An old proverb said to have Greek origins
…is coming to know a person better and better while finding the mutual bond continues to grow through all the imperfection and fault discovered. The healthiest love is built on respect for what is admirable and empathy for what is not.
“An Active Noun” by TV personality and writer Fred Rogers
a state of perfect caring.
It is an active noun
To love someone
is to strive
that person exactly
the way he or she is,
right here and now.
…that we willingly take on the unsettled times in our relationship and do our best to share with each other what is going on; how we feel; what we need and hope for. It’s not always easy, but we grow by doing it.
American singer, actress, and TV personality, Dinah Shore
is a part of your life,
and if you don’t share it,
you don’t give the person
who loves you
to love you enough.
…your simple sophistication that allows you to be ‘classy’, yet never appear to try to place yourself above others. It is an uncommon combination.
Attributed to many, but author is actually unknown
Being classy is NOT
about being stuck up,
but more so about
having a simply unique style
that will never be forgotten.
To be classy is to have respect;
respect for others,
respect for elders
and most of all respect for yourself.
