Love and Friendship

Love is not finding someone perfect,
but finding someone imperfect and
loving them perfectly.

"Love is the magician, the enchanter,
that changes worthless things toJoy,
and makes royal kings and queens of common clay.
It is the perfumeof that wondrous flower,
the heart, and without that sacred passion,
that divine swoon, we are less than beasts;
but with it, earth is heaven,
and we are gods." ~ Robert G. Ingersoll

A friend is one,
To whom one may pour out all,
The contents of one's heart
Chaff and grain, together,
Knowing that the gentlest of hands
Will take and sift it,
Keep what's worth keeping
And blow the rest away.
