Daily Gratitude: Love

Day 19/365: I am so grateful for the outpouring of love of my two aunts Lerrea and Wanda in my childhood. Looking back through these long years, I realize that I learned how to love in large part from those two amazing women.

Other thoughts on learning love:

“Love, too, has to be learned. In the end we are always rewarded for our good will, our patience, fair mindedness, and gentleness with what is strange; gradually, it sheds its veil and turns out to be a new and indescribable beauty:—that is its thanks for our hospitality. Even those who love themselves will have learned it in this way: for there is no other way.”
-- Friedrich Nietzsche

"Some day, when we have harnessed the power of the sun and the waves and gravity, we will learn how to harness the power of love.  And then, for the second time, we will have discovered fire."
-- Teillard de Chardin

"Woe to the man whose heart has not learned while young to hope, to love - and to put his trust in life."    
 -- Joseph Conrad
