Believe In A Love

Believe in a love
that is being stored up for you
like an inheritance,
and have faith that
in this love
there is a strength and a blessing so large
that you can travel
as far as you wish
without having to step outside it.


-Rainer Maria Rilke (from Letters To A Young Poet)

  1. To love yourself is the beginning of a life long love affair!
    -Oscar Wilde

    I looked up this quote to make sure it was accurate. Didn’t trust my memory.

    The page that I clicked on had a bunch of awesome quotes. The majority of which I am familiar with already.

    Here’s the link to the page: http://quotes.prolix.nu/Love/

    One of my favorites from one of my favorite books is:

    I say I’m in love with her. What does that mean? It means I review my future and my past in the light of this feeling. It is as though I wrote in a foreign language that I am suddenly able to read. Wordlessly, she explains me to myself. Like a genius, she is ignorant of what she does.

    – Jeanette Winterson, “The Passion”
