Love has many ways of expressing itself,
but in general the ways are two
~the practical and the sentimental.
Which is the higher and better way?
It is merely a question
of appropriateness
under the circumstances.
Love must express itself
very often in coal, and cornmeal,
and salt pork, and clothes.
But let it not be concluded that
love may not express itself
in acts of pure sentiment.
The soul has needs.
Sympathy and tenderness
and friendship are just as real
and more enduring,
than coal and wood.
Sometimes a flower
is more important than flour;
sometimes a word of cheer
is better than gold.

Because you love me, I have found
New joys that were not mine before;
New stars have lightened up my sky
With glories growing more and more.
Because you love me I can rise
To the heights of fame and realms of power;
Because you love me I may learn
The highest use of every hour.

Because you love me I can choose
To look through your dear eyes and see
Beyond the beauty of the Now
Far onward to Eternity.

Because you love me I can wait
With perfect patience well possessed;
Because you love me all my life
Is circled with unquestioned rest;
Yes, even Life and even Death
is all unquestioned and all blest.
Pall Mall Magazine

I love you not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you not only for what you have
made of yourself, but for what you are
making of me. I love you for the part
of me that you bring out.

I love you for putting your hand into my
heaped-up heart, and passing over all the
foolish and frivolous and weak things which
you cannot help dimly seeing there, and for
drawing out into the light all the beautiful,
radiant belongings, that no one else had
looked quite far enough to find.

I love you for ignoring the possibilities of
the fool and weakling in me, and for laying
firm hold on the possibilities of good in me.
I love you for closing your eyes to the discords
in me, and for adding to the music in me by
worshipful listening.

I love you because you are helping me to make
of the lumber of my life not a tavern but
a Temple, and of the words of my every day not a
reproach but a song.

I love you because you have done more than any
creed could have done to make me good, and more
than any fate could have done to make me happy.
You have done it just by being yourself.
Perhaps that is what being a friend means after all.
Jeremy Taylor

Love is the medicine of all moral evil. By it
the world is to be cured of sin. Love is the
wine of existence. When you have taken that,
you have taken the most precious drop of that
there is in the cluster. Love is the seraph, and
faith and hope are but the wings by which it flies.
The nature of the highest love is to be exquisitely
sensitive to the act of forcing itself unbidden and
unwelcomed upon another. The finer, the stronger,
the higher love is, the more it is conditioned upon
reciprocation. No man can afford to invest his being
in anything lower than faith, hope, love~these three,
the greatest of which is love.
Henry Ward Beecher

Deep in the heart of me,
Nothing but You!
See through the art of me
Deep in the heart of me
Find the best part of me,
Changeless and true.
Deep in the heart of me
Nothing by You!
Ruth Guthrie Harding

Love is the only flower
that grows and blossoms without
the aid of seasons.
~Kahlil Gibran

If humanity were to
Lead love's cavalcade to a bed of
Faithless motive, then love there
Would decline to abide. Love is a
Beautiful bird, begging capture,
But refusing injury.
~Kahlil Gibran

Darkness may hide the trees and
the flowers from the eyes
but it cannot hide
love from the soul.
~Kahlil Gibran

The power to Love, is God's
greatest gift to man
For it never will be taken
from the Blessed one who loves.
~Kahlil Gibran

Love lies in the soul alone
Not in the body,
and like wine
Should stimulate our better self
To welcome gifts of Love Divine.
~Kahlil Gibran

High thoughts and noble in all lands
Help me; my soul is fed by such.
But ah, the touch of lips and hands~
Warm, vital, close, life's symbols dear,~
These need I most, and now, and here.
~Richard Burton

Those Who Love

Who has learned to truly love
Has eyes that are not blind,
And lips forever slow to say
A word that is unkind,
Turns sadness into sweetness,
With fingers that can blend
A shadow into sunlight,
And a song into the wind.
Who has learned to truly love
Keeps Summer in his heart,
Can meet with truth and counterfeit,
And tell the two apart,
Turns every precious hour,
Worth all its weight in gold,
into a lasting arc that makes
A rainbow in his soul.
Who has learned to truly love
Can bend and never break,
Give everything within him,
And never wish to take,
Can see a silver lining
In every cloud above,
Blaze trails through stars
to light the years,
...The hearts that truly love.
Grace E. Easley

You're my day and night,
You're my moon and moonlight,
You're my eyes and sight,
You're my happiness and delight
You're my strenght and might,
You're my security and knight,
You're my good morning and good night,
You're my sun and sunlight,
You're my warming days of May,
You're my heart, my every day
You're my shield from every fear,
You're my heartbeat of every year.

I'm working on another page, which expresses
the beauty and power of Love. Please bookmark,
I know you will love it!
