Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
To enlarge or illustrate this power and effect of love is to set a candle in the sun.
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
To love abundantly is to live abundantly, and to love forever is to live forever.
To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.
Alphonse de Lamartine
