Quotes of the Week–Beginning of Love

Amaryllis Collage9

“The beginning of love is to let those we love
be perfectly
themselves and not to twist them
to fit our own image.  Otherwise we love only
the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”

~ Thomas Merton ~

“You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love;
the running across fields into your lover's arms
can only come later, when you're sure
they won't laugh if you trip.”

~ Jonathan Carroll ~

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you,
I could walk in my garden forever.”

~ Alfred Lord Tennyson ~

  3. Like, Ginny, I thought these were unusual quotes and I think everyone thinking of falling in love should have the first one as compulsory reading!
