The Only Valentine Thought

I’ve spent the eve of the Hearts Day just eating, sorting out in my mind the recent domestic problems that came, and trying my best to get some sleep.

Well, this is the only thing that came to my mind which, in a way, is related to the day pretty much celebrated by people...especially lovers. Read it from an old booklet I bought:


The most important thing in any relationship is not what you get but what you give.
It does not hurt to worship at a shrine which is quite unconscious, for out of it may grow an inner development in yourself and sometimes a relationship of real value.
In any case the giving of love is an education in itself.
-Eleanor Roosevelt*


*From “Great Words from Great Lives”, Reader’s Digest, 1970.
