Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.- Jean Anouilh, Ardele, 1948, (2, translated by Lucienne Hill)

Proactive people make love a verb. Love is something you do: the sacrifices you make, the giving of self, like a mother bringing a newborn into the world. If you want to study love, study those who sacrifice for others, even for people who offend or do not love in return. If you are a parent, look at the love you have for the children you sacrificed for. Love is a value that is actualized through loving actions. Proactive people subordinate feelings to values. Love, the feeling, can be recaptured. - Stephen R. Covey (Click here for more)
You have no interest in others who would normally attract you.
When you long to be in your love's arms every second of the day.
It actually feels like your feelings are physically coming from your heart.
When you think of your love and smile no matter how hard your day has been.
You see your love with all their imperfections, yet know they are perfect for you.
|NOVEMBER 1998 - I am reading and using the book "Keeping The Love You Find" by Harville Hendrix, PH.D.. EXCELLENT BOOK!
Some quotes from the book:
"Finding and keeping love is not just a romantic idea; it's crucial to our intact survival."
"Relationships pave the way for us to recapture our wholeness by correcting the distortions of caretaking and socialization that distanced us from our original selves (when just born). It is in unconditional loving our partner, making it safe for them to open to love, letting that love sink in over time so that trust can build, that allows their fullness to come back into being, so they can feel their oneness (like the baby in the womb), their totality. ...love is the answer. It is the love we give that heals our partner, and the love we receive that heals us.
