The only way to love

January 18, 2014

love w all heart

In for a penny, in for a pound, that’s what I say.

There’s just no way to love halfway. You’ve got to be all in.

If you’re going to take a risk, go all the way. Otherwise, it’s not worth the bother.

It reminds me of that old saying, “You can’t be a little pregnant.”

Yep. And we can’t love just a little.  We’re meant to love in great quantities. Huge quantities.

Many people think love is valuable because it’s scarce, but I think it’s just the opposite.

Love is abundant—we can’t love enough.

Kids, pets, mates, friends, the universe–love them all in a never-ending tidal wave of love.

There is no other way to love.

    I agree. Love – the opportunities for love are abundant.
    Go for it; your soul will benefit.
    There is the possibility of being hurt, but remaining open to loving again – loving more – will soothe the hurt.

    I think people have always confused romantic love for the only real love.

    Then our generation(s) came around and said “wait, I can love my friends as much in a different way,”

    I hope we can always remember that and find love everywhere

    Yes, yes and yes! Love every where you go and everything you see. I think love can definitely wipe out h8 and that is a very good thing.
