By Kahil Gibran

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught from itself Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto Love.

When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but Rather, "I am in the heart of God."

And think not you can direct the course of love, for love If it finds you worthy, directs your course

Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself But if you love and must needs desires, Let these be your desires...

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night; To know the pain of too much tenderness; To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and to give thanks for another day of loving

To rest at the noon hour and meditate loves ecstasy To return home at eventide with gratitude; and then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.
