 Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.

Today I’m thankful for Love

Your greatest power is the power to be.
To be more loving. To be more courageous.
To be more joyous. To be more friendly.
To be more sensitive. To be more aware.
To be more forgiving. To be more tolerant.
To be more humble. To be more patient.
To be more helpful.
To be a greater human being.

Wilfred A. Peterson 

I believe that in order to live fully, we need to love freely.  Love yourself, love others, and love life.  When all is said and done, the truth is that love never fails.  

The world sure would be a different place if we lacked the ability to love. Without love life has no meaning.

Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy

Thomas Merton

Unconditional love is the most powerful force in the universe.   Unconditional love means loving another in their essence, as they are, no matter what they do or fail to do

It requires a great deal of thought, action, and faith to love unconditionally, to act with love under all conditions.   The way to receive unconditional love is to give it away. Unconditional love doesn't come with any expectations or strings attached. It is present whether or not we succeed or fail and isn't attached to what we do but to who we are.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

Denis Waitley

Happiness is a choice and so is love.  To be happy, you need to love deeply, you need to love life, be passionate and not afraid.  Let’s choose to live life fully and make it a happy one. Let’s choose to fill it with love.

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.

George Sand

Love is powerful enough to make hard and sometimes irrational decisions. Love is powerful enough to commit to something for the long-haul. Love is powerful enough to get you out of bed at 5AM and get to work. Love is powerful enough to learn things and acquire skills to benefit the lives of others. Love is powerful enough to change you into someone more and better than you currently are.

The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love.

Henry Miller

I LOVE your final paragraph, Ma.

This reminds me of a pivotal moment near the end of Emory's Gift (my last post) where they discover a message that reads, "God Loves All."


love makes the world go round. "The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love."
