When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

“To love is to admire with the heart;
to admire is to love with the mind.”
– Theophile Gautier
“It is impossible to fall out of love. Love is such a powerful emotion, that once it envelops you it does not depart. True love is eternal. If you think that you were once in love, but fell out of it, then it wasn’t love you were in. There are no ‘exit’ signs in love, there is only an ‘on’ ramp.”
Love is like quicksilver in the hand.
Leave the fingers open and it stays.
Clutch it, and it darts away.
We come to love
Not by finding the perfect person
But by learning
To see an imperfect person perfectly
People look for love because
It’s the closest thing we have
to magic . ❤
