Ripples #820: Loveworthy!
Feb 9, 2015
The one thing we can never get enough of is love.
And the one thing we never give enough is love.
-Henry Miller, shared by Tracy in Pasadena, CA
Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.
-Thomas Merton, shared by Philip in Wichita, KS
I know that Valentine’s Day isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and of course you have options you can celebrate it, ignore it, or curse it as you see fit.
I tend to welcome it as an opportunity to consider love in all its variations, choosing from among several targets of love: romance, friends, family, pets, self, nature, etc. I think both of our quotes this week invite us to expand our capacity to both give and receive love. I hope you accept this invitation, and I hope it helps you grow.
ALSO: If you’d like an extra dose of love, I’ve gathered a list of our previous love-themed Ripples quotes. Send a blank email to Love@UnleashRipples.com OR visit my Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/notes/paul-wesselmann-the-ripples-guy/ripples-of-love/10152689050286662

P.S. My sincere apologies to Ray Bradbury fans AND to my buddy Abby. Due to an editing error last week, I posted the incorrect SOURCE of the Boulder in Ripples #819. It should have been: “We never sit anything out. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out. -Ray Bradbury, shared by Abby in Cincinnati, OH”
