Reflections on Love

For small creatures such as we,
the vastness is bearable only through love.
Carl Sagan

A part of kindness consists in loving people
more than they deserve.
Joseph Joubert

The giving of love is an education in itself.
Eleanor Roosevelt

When we are in love we seem to ourselves quite different
from what we were before.
Blaise Pascal

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones,
as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.
François de La Rochefoucauld

The three hardest tasks in the world are neither physical feats nor intellectual achievements, but moral acts: 1) To return love for hate; 2) To include the excluded; and 3) To say 'I was wrong.'
Ernst Heinrich Haeckel
