“I believe that love that is true and real, creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing… It is because they make love with sufficient passion, to push death out of their minds… until it returns, as it does, to all men… and then you must make really good love again.” ~ Ernest Hemingway

“Love is how it feels to recognize our essential unity. Awakening to oneness is the experience of Big Love. Knowing you are one with all, you find yourself in love with all.” ~ Timothy Freke

“Remember the emphasis on the heart. The mind lives in doubt and the heart lives in trust. When you trust, suddenly you become centered.” ~ Osho

verde in the desert (c) Holly Troy 2013“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
― Neil GaimanThe Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

“His eyes were wide open. I was holding in my arms the person I loved the most in the world, and talking to him as he died. His heart stopped. He wasn’t afraid. I had gotten to walk with him to the end of the world. Life – so beautiful, painful and dazzling – does not get better than that. And death? I believe that the purpose of death is the release of love.” – Laurie Anderson

“You do what you love, or you get arrested.” -Lou Reed
