To be truly happy one must accept the circumstances which they live in. You must understand that this is what's been so graciously given to you, things that you could lose in but the blink of an eye. You must accept what you have, what you do not have and realize that everything is so precious. Learn to share the things others lack. Like love, hope, words of strength. To be happy one must do everything they can to make sure the people around them are happy as well. To be happy you must live, and to truly live you... Read more »
Become loving. When you are in the embrace, become the embrace. Become the kiss. Forget yourself so totally that you can say, “I am no more. Only love exists.” Then the heart is not beating, but love is beating. Then the blood is not circulating, but love is circulating. Then eyes are not seeing, love is seeing. Then hands are not moving to touch, love is moving to touch. Become love and enter everlasting life. Love suddenly changes your dimension. You are thrown out of time and you are facing eternity. Love can become a deep meditation, the deepest possible.... Read more »
I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything through the one who makes me who I am. I guess I'm just a little old fashioned at heart. I would just be happy with a hand to hold and the love in my heart.
Love and sacrifice are not the same thing, but they are inseparable. To think of Christ and to think of the Cross is not the same thing, but the association is so close that the implication is immediate. Where love has been preached without sacrifice, it has not led to love but to license.
Everyone deserves a place that feels like home. Everyone deserves a hand to hold. Hands to pull you past the broken moments, hands to catch you when you fall. Eyes to see you. To say you’re there, that you exist, that you change a room, that your presence is significant. Ears to hear you - hear your stories, hear you laugh. Ears to hear your questions and to say they matter.
True love doesn’t have to hurt, doesn’t make you cry, doesn’t lie ~ True love is a breath of fresh air, it’s that warm place to go for comfort, it’s life enriching, it’s liberating, it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of... allow yourself to be loved and share that love in return.
Love is such a simple thing when we have only one-and-twenty summers and a sweet girl of seventeen trembles under our glance, as if she were a bud first opening her heart with wondering rapture to the morning. Such young unfurrowed souls roll to meet each other like two velvet peaches that touch softly and are at rest; they mingle as easily as two brooklets that ask for nothing but to entwine themselves and ripple with ever-interlacing curves in the leafiest hiding-places.
After the funeral, my grand-father hugged me and I'll never forget what he said. He told me that he had just lost the love of his life, the most important thing in the world to him and that it hurt like hell. He said he probably wouldn't ever be the same. But then he look me straight in the eyes; he said that this time with her was something with her he would never trade, that it was the only thing worth living for. He told me to find that. He told me that once I had that, nothing else... Read more »
No one will love you how you want to be loved, they’ll love you in the only ways they know how. Life throws everyone down drastically different paths so how can we expect everyone to love in the same way? The person you’ll spend your lifetime with will love you in their way and you’ll love in yours, and maybe you’ll meet in the middle and it’ll last. None of us know what we’re doing, you see, we’re just fumbling for matches in the dark. If you’re lucky, you might eventually just strike the right one.
Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here. Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go. Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.
Find someone that isn't afraid to admit they miss you. Someone that knows you're not perfect but treats you as if you are. Someone who couldn't imagine losing you. Someone who gives their heart to you completely. Someone who says I love you and proves it. Last but not least, find someone who wouldn't mind waking up to you in the morning, seeing your wrinkles and grey hair but still falls in love with you all over again.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies. A traditional vanilla flavored cake with hints of honey and spice! Its simple and down to earth, but don't let vanilla fool you. Its sweet simplicity is to die for topped off with a raspberry and strawberry whipped frosting that'll make your head spin!
We must take care not to ignore our friends and loved ones because of the hustle and bustle of our lives. These are human angels in our lives who love us unconditionally and no matter what we should not let them go...
I had a place for you, a place right next to me a place I sheltered with my heart. Your eyes, they had a steady hold on mine. My lips dried. My voice died. My head was so far gone. I twisted my fascination into your smile, I can't explain the way it hurt. An ache so violent and sudden. You were mine to hold, to kiss, to touch but you looked so good it hurt too much The panes of sunlight dripped across your face and the smiling became laughing, the holding became clenching, and the wanting became needing....
