Unlicensed Love

On a summer’s day long, long ago
I fell in love and I’ll never know
Just what it was that made me feel
So drawn to her, what the appeal
That set my pulses so to race
When e’er I gazed upon that face
Of one who was scarce but a child
Yet even then could drive me wild
I’ll never know the how’s and why’s
I lost my heart to Hazel Eyes
But when I got that long sought kiss
I knew I’d found my Perfect Miss
My elfin girl from down the lane
And I’ll never let her go again

For how could I describe our love?
Romantic love, all hearts and flowers
No way to count the days and hours
Spent in self-indulgent wishes
And thoughts of long awaited kisses
Of sweet embraces, tender sighs
And gazing into love filled eyes
Oh yes, it is that kind of love

Or, is it yet the love of passion
The ecstasy that knows no ration
That shuddering nerve-tingling feeling
The climax with your senses reeling
The wondrous joy when you discover
That sweet surrender to your lover
Oh yes, it’s that kind of love too.

Or even yet a love that grows
One that cares and one that knows
That sees beyond the outer skin
Into the person deep within
That loves the spirit and the soul
The inner self that makes the whole
Built on trust and empathy
A love you know was meant to be

The love we share is all these things
A love that has no need of rings
A love you never need to doubt
A love I cannot live without
A love to last us all our days
A love I’ll share with you always

– Jim Sharman –


some quotes

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage

to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Life is a book with many chapters. Some tell of tragedy, others of triumph. Some chapters are dull and ordinary, others intense and exciting. The key to being a succcess in life is to never stop on a difficult page, to never quit on a tough chapter. Champions have the courage to keep turning the pages because they know a better chapter lies ahead and with God, nothing is impossible.

“If you would be loved, love and be lovable.”
-Benjamin Franklin

“True love never dies for it is lust that fades away. Love bonds for a lifetime but lust just pushes away.”
-Alicia Barnhart

“Where there is love there is life.”

“The supreme happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved.”
-Victor Hugo

17. “Love sought is good, but given unsought, is better.”
-William Shakespeare

18. “The course of true love never did run smooth.”
-William Shakespeare

19. “They do not love that do not show their love.”
-William Shakespeare

“Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here.”
-Marianne Williamson

Just because you know someone doesn’t mean you love them, and just because you don’t know people doesn’t mean you can’t love them. You can fall in love with a complete stranger in a heartbeat, if God planned that route for you. So open your heart to strangers more often. You never know when God will throw that pass at you.
Writer Heather Grove

Love, true love, is that which can give the most without asking or demanding anything in return.
Mazie Hammond

No one is perfect until you fall in love with them.

Is it better for a woman to marry a man who loves her than a man she loves?

You’ll never be able to count your true friends on more than one hand. If you can, one of them isn’t your friend.
Suzie Sinclair

If more people realized the true value in a friend, then more people would hold on tighter to the friendships they have and treasure them.

A friend is a gift you give yourself.
Robert Louis Stevenson

If you are going to have a full life, then you must decide to become a friend worth having while loving unconditionally and this is a hard task for many but not an impossible one.

One day, I was discussing with a friend at university about the difficulty to define some physics basic notions (my friend was actually a Physics Professor). Then, he gives me an instance of word (”Culture”) which is well known by almost everybody, yet difficult to associate with an exhaustive definition. One definition he found interesting was: ” Culture is what remains when we forget the rest”. Ah!, that was interesting for me as well, because, ironically, this is also exactly my favorite definition of another word. That of “Education”, another subject I am interested to as well.
It happened to me one day, by the way, when reading one of John Taylors Gatto’s books about schooling and education, to find a reference to an interesting book that speaks about both culture and education. The following are excerpts from that book, ” The aims of education”, by Alfred North Whitehead, and from his others essays. I wanted to collect these words to serve as objects of reflexion on the subject.

“Culture is activity of thought, and receptiveness to beauty and humane feeling. Scraps of information have nothing to do with it. A merely well-informed man is the most useless bore on God’s earth. What we should aim at producing is men who possess both culture and expert knowledge in some special direction
