The Christmas tree is a symbol of love, not money. There's a kind of glory to them when they're all lit up that exceeds anything all the money in the world could buy.
“I am much less sure about most things than I used to be. But I feel the pull of the love of God all the time, and I don’t care nearly so much about not understanding." - Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, Author.
Just as love is the giving of one's self, so is compromise.
When all else fails, love.
Every time you feel the need to blame someone for a painful experience, but you choose consciously not to act on that need, you take a step toward love.
This, I think, is what love is: taking it all in, hoping for the best. Admiring the lake’s shimmering surface and unknown depths. Building a bank of memories, and cherishing them all equally.

To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
The most curative thought in the world is the thought of love.
Love is a fabric which never fades, no matter how often it is washed in the water of adversity and grief.
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.
Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do them beautifully!
