WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MONTH?

This week’s challenge over at Inspiration Avenue is sharing your “Favorite Month”
Can you guess mine?

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
- Aristotle
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
- Lao Tzu

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.
- William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
- Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.
- Henry Ward Beecher

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires; To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
- Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. (I especially LOVE this one)
- Zora Neale Hurston

Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.
- Leo Tolstoy

I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart.
- Alice Walker

….And This ONE….
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
- Pablo Neruda, "Love Sonnet XVII"

  6. You're a brave one to choose February when we are in the midst of winter and all longing for spring! And you almost have me convinced, but I think I am still a lover of June. Love your photos and romantic quotes!

  7. This is great! I have to say, though, that I was a little surprised when I got to the bottom and saw it was February! I thought all the love stuff would relate to June! I guess I'm a little thick this morning! At any rate, it's lovely!

  10. Perhaps it's wishful thinking but the dog looks like a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Whatever breed, it's a lovely, strong, handsome dog.
    Happy Valentine's Day...early.
