If you would be loved, love and be lovable. ~ Benjamin Franklin
It’s not a new idea
by any stretch of imagination…
Love comes back to us.
The “Pay it forward” practice.
We love life,
not because we are used to living
we are used to loving. (Friedrich Nietzsche)
We are all love looking for a place to happen.
“To forgive is merely to remember
only the loving thoughts
you gave in the past,
and those that were given you.”
(A Course in Miracles)
So then, the relationship of self
to other is the complete realization
that loving yourself
is impossible without loving everything
defined as other than yourself. (Alan Watts)
‘Most dangerous is that temptation
that doth goad us on to sin
in loving virtue. (William Shakespeare)
If you would be loved, love and be lovable.
