Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939, translated from French by Lewis Galantière
A bell is no bell ’til you ring it, A song is no song ’til you sing it,
And love in your heart, Wasn’t put there to stay – Love isn’t love
‘Til you give it away. ~ Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, “You Are Sixteen (Reprise)”
Every relationship – even the most unsatisfactory – is part of this evolutionary process, giving us the opportunity to practice our love, to open our hearts, and create perfection in the moment. If we are wise to love we will learn from it and this will allow us to better understand ourselves and move forward.
