As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

Who, being loved, is poor?
- Oscar Wilde

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places.

And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy

the loved one is free to be himself -

and can never grow in a jealous heart.
- Leo F. Buscaglia

At the beginning, we are in relationship
because we are attracted to the other person -

If we don't feel appreciated, we don't feel loved.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- St. Francis of Assisi

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

our bitterest tears are called forth
by the memory of hours when we loved not enough.

but we cannot accept and love ourselves.
- don Miguel Ruiz
