In order to hear Love’s words, you must allow Love to
approach. However, when it does draw near, we fear
what it might say to us, because Love is free and is not
ruled by our will or by what we do.
All lovers know this, but refuse to accept it. They think
they can seduce Love through submission, power,
beauty, wealth, tears and smiles.
True Love, however, is the love that seduces and will
never allow itself to be seduced.
Love transforms, love heals.
We are used to thinking that what we give is the same
as what we receive, but people who love, expecting to
be loved in return, are wasting their time.
Love is an act of faith, not an exchange.
Contradictions are what make love grow.
Conflicts are what allow love to remain by our side.
Life is too short for us to keep important words, for
example, ‘I love you’, locked in our hearts.
