Sunday Dinner: Walking Through My Garden, Forever


“If I had a flower

for every time I thought of you…

I could walk through my garden forever.”


Alfred Tennyson



“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.”


William Shakespeare



“We love the things

we love for what they are.”


Robert Frost



“The world is indeed full of peril,

and in it there are many dark places;

but still there is much that is fair,

and though in all lands

love is now mingled with grief,

it grows perhaps the greater.”


J.R.R. Tolkien



“When I despair,

I remember that all through history

the way of truth and love have always won.

There have been tyrants and murderers,

and for a time, they can seem invincible,

but in the end, they always fall.

Think of it–always.”


Mahatma Gandhi



“Love doesn’t just sit there, like a stone,

it has to be made, like bread;

remade all the time,

made new.”


Ursula K. Le Guin



“There is always some madness in love.

But there is also always some reason in madness.”


Friedrich Nietzsche

“And, in the end
The love you take
is equal to the love you make.”

Sir Paul McCartney,
