I believe this. If it were not so what is a “heart” for? Why all the songs, poetry, stories about Love? Everyone needs to be loved and to love. I foresee an Awakening based on Love. Love and Compassion heal. -Starra, Le Minx
Sometimes love is a surprise, an instant of recognition, a sudden gift at a sudden moment that makes everything different from then on. Some people will say that’s not love, that you can’t really love someone you don’t know. But, I’m not so sure. Love doesn’t seem to follow a plan; it’s not a series of steps. It can hit with the force of nature—an earthquake, a tidal wave, a storm of wild relentless energy that is beyond your simple attempts at control.
The Wise and Kind Bear read to me with his voice so gentle, and it brought me so much Joy and Serenity. -Starra, le Minx

And no relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater. But, the love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot. ~Sarah Dessen this lullaby
Be true to yourself whilst BE-coming who you are meant to be.
“Know Thy Self.” - Oracle of Delphi
Oracle at Delphi
Immature love says: ‘I love you because I need you.’
Mature love says: ‘I need you because I love you’
I will meet you on the nape of your neck one day,
on the surface of intention, word becoming act.
We will breathe into each other the high mountain tales,
where the snows come from, where the waters begin.
This is how it works. I love the people in my life, and I do for my friends whatever they need me to do for them, again and again, as many times as is necessary. For example, in your case you always forgot who you are and how much you’re loved. So what I do for you as your friend is remind you who you are and tell you how much I love you. And this isn’t any kind of burden for me, because I love who you are very much. Every time I remind you, I get to remember with you, which is my pleasure.
Being Deeply Loved By Someone Gives You Strength, While Loving Someone Deeply Gives You Courage.
I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.
Can you understand? Someone, somewhere, can you understand me a little, love me a little? For all my despair, for all my ideals, for all that - I love life. But it is hard, and I have so much - so very much to learn.
Deciding whether or not to trust a person is like deciding whether or not to climb a tree, because you might get a wonderful view from the highest branch, or you might simply get covered in sap, and for this reason many people choose to spend their time alone and indoors, where it is harder to get a splinter.
