Wouldn’t it be nice if LOVING was its own reward?
Alas, life is not that easy.
The great lovers know how frustrating, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, dangerous, and lonely LOVING can be.
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.
