archival : love class, part 2 :
Experience seems to convince us that only fools trust,
that only fools believe and accept all things.
If this is true, then love is most foolish,
for if it is not founded on trust, belief and acceptance,
It's not love.
The Perfect love would be one that
gives us all and expects nothing.
It would, of course,
be willing and delighted to take anything it was offered;
the more the better.
But it would ask for nothing.
For if one expects nothing and asks nothing,
he can never be decieved or disappointed.
It is only when love demands that it brings on pain.
If you love truly, then you have no choice but to
believe, trust, accept and hope that your love will be returned.
But there can never be any assurance, never any guarantee.
If one waits to love only until
he is certain of recieving equal love in return,
he may wait forever.
