“ If something in you blossoms, people are willing to overlook all the thorns that are there in you. ”
Only when you are willing to look at the horror of who you are, the beauty of who you are can be nurtured
When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you'd like them to be.
If you want a plant to grow and blossom into beautiful fragrant flowers, you can think you are fighting the earth and getting flowers out of it. Or you can see it as a great love affair, that your involvement with the earth gives out such beauty and fragrance for you
If you love someone, you should do what they like for them. Not what you like.
