Steinbeck Love Advice


My friend emailed my roommates and me this link today. I sat reading it at the kitchen table and I wept. It was not an ugly cry, it was what one does when the beauty of the written word becomes too much for your body to contain. My favorite lines:


First -- if you are in love -- that's a good thing -- that's about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don't let anyone make it small or light to you.

Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.

The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.

If you love someone -- there is no possible harm in saying so

And don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens -- The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.
