    Quote About Love 8

    A Quote I Like...

    After 9/11 when the country was gearing up for war I was in a shop and found a bumper sticker with a quote by Ghandi: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" I bought the bumper sticker & it is on my rear bumper to this day.

    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.

    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
