Like a box of...

A little sampler for you today:

"Sometimes it's a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence."
— David Byrne

"For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make."
— Geoffrey Chaucer, Parlement of Foules

"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting this down."
— Woody Allen, Love and Death

"Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes them and joins them by what is deepest in themselves."
— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye."
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery

One of my old favorite songs

Do you do it Aristotelian or Wittgensteinian?

What not to give someone you love

I just might be doing this later today, it's good for the heart


Did you find one you enjoyed? Maybe mint, caramel, or dark chocolate truffle?

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody! Thank you, dear reader, for stopping by — you are appreciated. Will U B mine 4 2day?

I, too, loved Woody Allen's quote.

Does that mean that I suffer?:)

I'll be yours.

When you were a kid, did you and your girlfriends have hand-clap games like "Miss Mary Mack"?

If you did...
I'd want you to be my hand-clap pal.
