Good Quotes

I have a million bits of paper with quotes scribbled on them which I occasionally come across, read, and stuff away again into drawers, jewelry boxes, and all the random tea, cigar and other boxes that are too pretty to throw away. Rather than writing these down only to lose them in the chaos of paper bits that will someday overtake me, here are a few about love that I just saw and like.

"For one human being to love another is the most difficult task of all. It’s the work for which all other work is mere preparation." -Rainer Maria Rilke

"Someday after we have mastered the winds, the waves, and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love; and then for a second time in the history of the world, human beings will have discovered fire." 
-Teilhard de Chardin

"Until you have loved, you cannot become yourself." -Emily Dickinson
