    When I understand myself,

    I understand you, and out of that understanding comes love. Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action which produces...

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

    “A heart given freely is the most vulnerable

    and selfless thing one can offer another human being. It can be as fragile and needy as a newly born infant, or as solid and self-supporting as a granite pillar, yet it is the hands of the recipient that determines its ultimate fate.” ― Mark W Boyer

    "A flower does not think of competing with the

    flower next to it. It simply blooms." - Anonymous (Maybe?) I really like this quote, for it keeps me grounded. It's infuriating when people are always trying to prove themselves or be the best at something, especially with things like beauty and materialistic endeavours.
