A flower falls, even though we love it; and a weed grows, even though we do not love it.
- Dogen Zenji
It’s not that often we see a truly devoted couple they are.
If people walk in the woods for the love of them half of each day, they are in danger of being regarded as loafers; but if they spend their whole days as speculators, shearing off those woods and making earth bald before her time, they are esteemed industrious and enterprising citizens. As if a town had no interest in forests but to cut them down!
-Henry David Thoreau
Love is like war; easy to begin but very hard to stop.
The man who has never made a fool of himself in love will never be wise in love.
