Pure Love

Pure love is a willingness to give without a thought of receiving anything in return.  ~ Peace Pilgrim    ~

Pure love does not expect anything.  Pure love does not demand.  Pure love is natural, gracious and freeing.

I see that you believe in love such as the poets and romancers have represented… The poets represent love as the sculptors design beauty, as the musicians create melody; that is to say, endowed with an exquisite nervous organization, they gather up with discerning ardor the purest elements of life, the most beautiful lines of matter, and the most harmonious voices of nature…. To try to find in real life such love as this, eternal and absolute, is the same thing as to seek on the public squares such a woman as Venus or to expect nightingales to sing the symphonies of Beethoven. ~Alfred de Musset, The Confession of a Child of the Century/La Confession d’un enfant du siècle, 1836, Desgenais to Octave.
