FROM RUMI , A MAN FROM ANCIENT PERSIA
WHO WAS WISE ABOUT LIFE AND LOVE:
The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
FROM ADAM BEDE:
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that
they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labours.
To minister to each other in all sorrows. To share with each other in all gladness. To be with each other in all the silent memories.
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
