"Love is the will to extend one’s self for the purpose of nurturing one’s own or anothers spiritual growth… Love is as love does. Love is an act of will — namely, both an intention and an action. Will also implies choice. We do not have to love. We choose to love."
I love everything about this. But most of all I love that this is one of those sweet quotes you pass to the other while you’re having a shitty day, are ugly, sitting in a restaurant because you were both too lazy too cook, are too tired to speak so you doodle a bit on an old receipt you found in the inside pocket of your three-sizes-too-big-thriftstore-coat. that’s what love is.
"If you’re not comfortable enough with yourself or with your own truth when entering a relationship, then you’re not ready for that relationship."
