  1. I love the analogy of love as a time-released pill. And one that fills us with never-ending endorphins. This is very beautiful. And is there anything that can heal us like love can? I think not :)

  12. There's no other way to love - but to love whole and to be consumed by it. There is no love in half measures. :-)
