Love . . .
“Immature love says: ‘I love you because I need you.’ Mature love says: ‘I need you because I love you.’”
~ Erich Fromm, 1900 – 1980
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”
~ The New Testament, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Both are very apt quotations for the day, my least favorite day of the year. It baffles me that we spend an entire day devoted to showing one another how much we care when we should be making it a point to do that daily for our friends, family, and loved ones.
What’s the Valentine’s Day equivalent to “BAH HUMBUG?” LOL
Hi, Ang! I think “Bah, Humbug!” works very well here, too! LOL!
I’m glad you liked the quotations. It does seem that it’s something we should be remembering every day, not just a few days of the year.
Thanks for your comment!
That is true, I agree, of course. What worse way to have THAT whole commercial idea driven home to one than to have one’s BIRTHDAY on that day!! >< (Heylo Sis! 😀 )
Hey, there, kiddo!
But then you get extra special birthday cakes! And it’s good that you like pink … LOL!
