It is the heart and not the brain
That to the highest doth attain,
And he who followeth Love's behest
Far excelleth all the rest.
~ Henry W. Longfellow
There are all kinds of artist. A group we should celebrate more are artist of life itself who use their tools to express the inexpressible. Without a brush, they depict life with bright colors. Without a knife, they sculpt the magic of being. Without a scale, they create music for us all. Without choreography, they engage in the dance of life.
When we are born, we are given tools to create a life of beauty. These same tools can be used to perpetuate ugliness and destruction. Hopefully we will understand at some point in our lives that we can decide to reflect beauty. Tangible works of art fade with time, chip from walls, and may be discredited by passing trends. But a life of love lasts forever.
(Born For Love)
Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude.
~ Living Bible
Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out.
If you love someone you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost. You will always believe in him, Always expect the best of him and always stand your ground in defending him.
All the special gifts and powers from God will someday come to an end, but love goes on forever.
I Corinthians 13:4-8
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
~ William Shakespeare
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
Oh no! It is an ever fixèd mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come.
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
Send a loved one some flowers
and attach one
of these quotes to let them know how you truly feel.
A loving heart is the truest wisdom.
