a love quote … what is within us

Note: This is a follow up to yesterday’s post: A Strategic Look at Valentine’s Day

“What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

So. I have dated several amazing women and not dumped them (or been dumped) before Christmas (to avoid giving a gift) or Valentine’s Day (for fear of commitment).

And in that moment, on that day, for that special someone, while I may have given gifts or tried to make the day a little more special I would envision these words would encapsulate the truly special relationships with those very few women I have ever said “I love you” to.

“What lies within us” is the definition of love.

Valentine’s Day or not.
