All the things in life that I have aspired to or for all the things that life has offered me, I have learned that, in the end, most of all, I just want to love and be loved! Sometimes when we do find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it, because it is the most painful kind of hope there is. To love with your whole heart openly and unconditionally takes courage. To love from an open heart is a sublime gift, and though we seek nothing in return, it's greatest reward is to ourselves.
