It was Matteo Bandello who wrote, “Yet some there be who would say that love is not most potent! Who after this will venture to deny the greatness of its puissance? Verily, its might is far in excess of all that we can avail to conceive. Do we not daily see it produce the rarest and most marvellous effects in the world and overcome all things? Wherefore it used to be said that one cannot love by measure; for, whenas love willeth, He maketh kings, princes and men of the utmost nobility…”
Isn’t love a wonderful thing?! With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s good to remember that many people love not only other people, but ideas, dreams, books, sports, cooking, nature and a good deal other things in this world. Life is short so we need to keep the love spreading around the world!
