The Way of Love

The way of love is not a subtle argument. The door there is devastation. Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom. How do they learn it? They fall, and falling, they are given wings.


It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them.

-Agatha Christie
