Love is the opening of the heart, the welcoming of your beloved.
Loving is not secure, authentic loving is risky.
Security lies behind the walls of a closed heart.
You either invite the union by opening in love, or you secure the isolation by closing down.
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another. Thomas Merton
Love is a force more formidable than any other.
It is invisible - it cannot be seen or measured,
yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment,
and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
Barbara de Angelis
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does.

Love is our true destiny.
We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.
