A Meditation on Faith: The Golden Rule, Part XI

Wouldn’t it be nice if LOVING was its own reward?

Alas, life is not that easy.

LOVE… so often a seed cast upon barren ground.

LOVE… so often anguished by self-doubt… no matter how honorable one’s intentions.

And so, the greatest lovers are those with the greatest capacity to suffer.
