“I did think, let’s go about this slowly.

This is important.  This should take

some really deep thought.  We should take

small thoughtful steps.

But, bless us, we didn’t.”  –Mary Oliver

of someone you love,

including all its expressions

in privacy and in public,

trees, I think,

are the most beautiful

forms on earth.

Though, admittedly,

if this were a contest,

the trees would come in

an extremely distant second.” –Mary Oliver

careful and smart in matters of love,’

who says, ‘I’m going to choose slowly,’

but only those lovers who didn’t choose at all

but were, as it were, chosen

by something invisible

and powerful and uncontrollable

and beautiful and possibly even

unsuitable—

only those know what I’m talking about

in this talking about love.”  –Mary Oliver

“But love, sooner or later, forces us out of time…of all that we feel and do, all the virtues and all the sins, love alone crowds us at last over the edge of the world. For love is always more than a little strange here…It is in the world, but is not altogether of it. It is of eternity. It takes us there when it most holds us here.”
— Wendell Berry

“Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.”

“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

“This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.”
― Stephen Chbosky
