Footprints

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him to him and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the prints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life, there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at very lowest and saddest times of his life.

This really bothered him and questioned the Lord about it: "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me!??"

The Lord replied, "My child, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you alone. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you…"

Don’t walk ahead of me, I may not follow.

Don’t walk behind of me, I may not lead.

Walk beside of me and be my friend.

It is part of human condition to long for the unexpressed. The simple word of genuine thanks, the modest sign of appreciate the sincere expression of affection, really make a difference in our lives. We cannot explain why these signs mean so much to us. But the fact is that a word of thanks for some small things can transform our day.

The Arithmetic and Love

The arithmetic of love is unique: two halves do not make a whole; only two wholes make a whole.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Direction of Love

Love doesn’t consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Think not that you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

To forgive is the highest,

Most beautiful form of love,

In return you will receive

Untold peace and happiness

;;;;;;;;;;

 

However rare true love is, true friendship is ever rarer

;;;;;;;;;;

 

The happiest moments of my life have been the flow of affection among friends

;;;;;;;;;;

 

A faithful friend is the medicine of life

;;;;;;;;;;

I love you!

Not only for what you are,

But for what I am.

When I am with you,

I love you,

Not only for what,

You have made of yourself,

But for what you are making of me.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

For a successful relationship, similar word views help.

If a vegetarian living with someone who doesn’t believe a meal is a "meal" unless a piece of red meat sits in the center of the plat, every meal will be a potential battleground in an endless war.

Love does not cause suffering: what causes it is the sense of ownership, which is love’s opposite.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Speak low if you speak love.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity can be the tick of clock. Across the barriers of time and the ultimate destiny, love persists, for the home of the beloved, absent or present, is always in the mind and heart. Absence does not diminish love.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

If we cannot love unconditionally, love is already in a critical condition.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Vulnerability is always a the heart of the lover

;;;;;;;;;;

 

The opposite of love is indifference

;;;;;;;;;;

 

It is not true that life is one damn thing after another, it’s one damn thing over and over again.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

A marriage is like a long trip in a tiny rowboat: if one passenger starts to rock the boat, te other has to steady it; otherwise they will both go to the bottom together.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Before marriage a man will lie awake all night thinking about something you said; after marriage he’ll fall asleep before you finish saying it.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Pleasure of love lasts but a moment;

Pain of love lasts a lifetime.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

How distant I am from the people when I am with them. And how close when they are far away.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

As soon as you cannot keep anything from a woman you love her.

;;;;;;;;;;

The heart of him who truly loves is a paradise on earth, he has God in himself, for God is love.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

To love is to place our happiness in the happiness of another

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Grief, like pleasure, infects the atmosphere. A first glance into any house is enough to tell you whether love or despair reigns there.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

It doesn’t matter who you love or how you love, but that you love!

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

When we have actually ceased loving a person, it is impossible to love them a second time.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Though she in whom your heart is set is not for you, you are the richer for the fact that she exists. Thus, too, with the pearl at the bottom of the sea.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Tears are the noble language of the eyes

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Love, is like death changes everything.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

Love dies only when growth stops.

;;;;;;;;;;

 

No one should be allowed to die before has loved.
