"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth."
Sorry, Mr. Thoreau, but I have to disagree with you on this one. Love will keep us alive! lol I say that in jest, but it's true. There was a study done in Europe many years ago. Newborn babies were given all the "bare necessities" of life. They were fed, changed....and given whatever care they required. They were not given affection, however. They weren't held, rocked or played with. The outcome? They died. I couldn't find a link to this. It is something I learned in Anatomy and Physiology in college. So, if you happen to come across a link, I'd love for you to share it with me.
Love makes the world go round. Ok....maybe passion makes the world go round. lol Love makes it a safer place. (that's actually a quote I stole from Ice T) Simple, yet so true.
And, my favorite of all time quote..........
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will truly know peace." Bob Marley
That quote sums up so much that I truly believe. But, that's a blog for another day.
So, go out and share love with other people. It makes you and the other person feel good. You can truly change a person's day that way. (and your own) And, that is the truth!
