Love Wisdom

I need a wall where I can hang all my torn magazine pages, sticky notes, quotes, WORDS, book covers, photographs...a place where I can see my inspiration.

I need a wall where I can map my beautiful mind - floor to ceiling - cork and pins and inspiration. 

Last night, this page from Reader's Digest resonated with me.

"There are several kinds of love.  One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance.  This is the ugly and crippling kind.  The other is an outpouring of everything good in you -of kindness and consideration and respect--not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable.  The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had."  
-Steinbeck: A Life in Letters

...an outpouring of love...of everything good in you...of kindness and consideration and respect...can release in you strength and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had.  I really like the sound of that but I love the way it feels.



Love,
Me
