I’m not big on supporting the Hallmark card industry and bearing gifts in February, though I find it irresistible not to celebrate some thing that pertains to hearts in small ways. Being that I’m not too creative right I offer no originals, but will share a few from my ever- growing list of favorites. The girls like to choose their own copy work for penmanship practice and have used a few of these so far this month. They have an ever growing aversion to workbooks and like to make their own. I totally agree.
Love.....bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things
endures all things.
Love is the great beautifier.--Louisa May Alcott
Never a lip is curved with pain
That can’t be kissed into a smile again.--Brete Hart
......here us the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)–ee cummings
All children are beautiful when they’re loved.--Bertha Holt
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength.
While loving someone deeply gives you courage.–Lao Tzu
And now here is my secret, a very simple secret;
it is only with the heart that one can see rightly,
what is essential is invisible to the eye.–Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The first duty of love-is to listen.–Paul Tillich
In our life there is a single
color, as on an artist’s
which provides the
meaning of life and art.
It is the color of love.–Marc Chagall
No disguise can long conceal love where it exists, or long feign it where it is lacking." ~ Francois La Rochefoucauld
Love is an energy which exists of itself. It is its own value.
Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.
If music be the food of love, play on.
-- William Shakespeare
