FROM THE HEART

There's something profound about a quotation. Perhaps it's just that the author can say so much in so few words, or maybe it's because it touches our heart and echoes the words we long to say. I've always loved quotations and have collected them for years. We may stress in our day to day life about our personal finance, our jobs, the financial management of the nation, but love is what soothes and calms the spirit, and what life is really all about. I share my collection of quotes with you---arranged by subject (see index to left). May they speak to your heart and inspire you to 'let your love show.'



Quotations: Love is...




Love Letter

Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
--Alexander Smith


Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator of our favourite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places. And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all - one known only by those who love.
--Author Unknown


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.
--1 Corinthians 13:4-7
