When a chap is in love, he will go out in all kinds of weather to keep an appointment with his beloved. Love can be demanding, in fact more demanding than law. It has its own imperatives — think of a mother sitting by the bedside of a sick child through the night, impelled only by love. Nothing is too much trouble for love.

– Desmond Tutu

 One of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.

– Margaret Mead

We can perhaps learn to prepare for love. We can welcome its coming, we can learn to treasure and cherish it when it comes, but we cannot make it happen. We are elected into love. 

– Irene Claremont de Castillejo
