Quote by Reinhold Niebuhr
Love is like a river, never ending as it flows, but gets greater with time.
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
Love is like jumping out of an airplane knowing that someone else has packed your chute. You pull the cord hoping that a canopy opens up, but it could very well be packed full of dirty laundry and a half eaten cheese sandwich.
Love is like water. We can fall in it. We can drown in it. And we can't live without it.
Love is a symbol of eternity, it wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.
Love is not an alarm clock, you can not have it sound at a time that you think is convenient and appropriate. It can not be contained between people until you think it should be there.
Love cannot endure indifference. It needs to be wanted. Like a lamp, it needs to be fed out of the oil of another's heart, or its flame burns low.
