Your moment of Zen

Brought to you by ASM826, in a comment left a couple years back:
It will be required of each of us to die in our time. It is who we were, how we loved, and the relationships we fostered that makes up the life we had. It not the length of time we were given, or the way it ends that defines our life.

Love, take the risk and love. To turn away is to choose the Abyss because you have not the courage to risk the possibility of loss. You will thrown life away without ever knowing the joy and sweetness that gives it meaning.

Loving another person is an act of incredible daring in the face of an indifferent universe. To love, and to share that love with another in a way that brings another life into being shows us be creatures of such hope that the very idea of it is miraculous.
To dare like that is an act of insufferable defiance in the face of a cruel, indifferent Universe.  It's an act of insolence, really.  It's what, in the end, makes us human.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength.  Loving someone deeply gives you courage.
- Lao Tzu

"Love, take the risk and love."

Can be very painful if not successful.
