quote

It is good to love: because love is difficult.

For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation.

    It’s definitely a challenge when the person who you love the most can be the one who drives you the most crazy!

    I thought that was putting up the outside Xmas lights without getting injured, electrocuted or maimed.

    Can I take the test again?
