Chapter 8, Page 13, Book 15

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself. 

Jean Anouilh

August 13th - Love Means Giving Oneself Away. 

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in a spirit of love.

Henry Drummond

We all have love within in us, and we all have the ability to choose to give it away. A simple gift to give anyone is to be there with that person 100%. It’s when we give of ourselves, that we truly give.

You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving. 

Here’s the thing and it’s an old thing,  love is never love until we give it away.  If it just flows in without ever flowing out, it becomes stagnant and dies.   When we give love away, it is in the heart of another but it. is our heart as well.

Love is a circle, love is you and me. Love, once it is given, has no end,

So true that love is not love unless we give it away. We can give it away so simply, like you said, a little gift, an encouraging word, even a smile, it all can be done with love.

So true, (then I look up and Betty said the same) So it must strike a cord of common belief. Good entry. Love is being a great subject also.
Love is sent this time from Arkansas.
