Red red rose..

We all have the power to give love. And if we do so, we change the kind of person we are, and we change the kind of world we live in.
– Rabbi Harold Kushner

A Red, Red Rose
by Robert  Burns

O my luve's like a red, red rose.
That's newly sprung in June;
O my luve's like a melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
Till a'the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun:
I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o'life shall run.

And fare thee weel my only Luve!
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!

If you desire something from the very depths of your hearts, nature conspires to give you your deepest wish.

A blue bird

If you walk into a forest - you hear all kinds of subtle sounds - but underneath there is an all pervasive silence.
– Eckert Tolle

I had drawn this picture from my blog friend's photo http://birdsfod.blogspot.in - Thanks Bob!

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
– Thomas Merton, Trappist monk [Roman Catholic]

Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
– Albert Schweitzer

Have a lovely week everyone!
