Quoting Just Because (and Missing the Fam)

We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
John Lennon

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Kahlil Gibran

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.  ~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

In those whom I like, I can find no common
denominator; in those whom I love I can:
they all make me laugh....Wystan Hugh Auden.

The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass
through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape
parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that
does not lessen our possible impact, for there are
scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come
along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique
talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because
we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we
underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act
of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around.
It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities
there are to make our love felt....Leo Buscaglia.

The best way to know God is to love many things....Vincent Van Gogh.

"Relationships are treated like Dixie cups. They are the same. They are disposable. If it does not work, drop it, throw it away, get another.
Committed bonds (including marriage) cannot last when this is the prevailing logic. Most of us are unclear about what to do to protect and strengthen caring bonds when our self-centered needs are not being met."-bell hooks



Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.  ~Author Unknown
