To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy. As everyone else, I love to dunk my crust in it. But alone, it is not a diet designed to keep body and soul together.
People stood on their chairs, cheering and waving. And it was all for me! Waves of love flooded the stage and washed over me. I started to cry. The sweetness of such a moment is impossible to describe. One is both lover and beloved.... I'd found the one true, enduring romance of my life.
It is true that I never should have married, but I didn't want to live without a man. Brought up to respect the conventions, love had to end in marriage. I'm afraid it did.
I love my profession. I would never stop. Relax? I relax when I work. It's my life.
Wave after wave of love flooded the stage and washed over me, the beginning of the one great durable romance of my life.
Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone—but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding.
Almost as many inhumanities are committed in the name of love as in the name of religion.
Quote of the day
