The song of love ,love of nature, and all other creatures
, love that illuminates the wonderful aspects of life and that gives life meaning and depth. ……
He believe in the purity of human being and the goodness hidden in every soul, that is devoid of any evil … it is a whisper on spirituality……

A quote that I liked….

Love has no other 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.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

My parents read this book to us as children. They gave us copies when we were older too. It is an absolute favourite of mine, full of wisdom. Thanks for sharing your lovely review, Hend.
