Zora Neale Hurston
“She was stretched on her back beneath the pear tree soaking in the alto chant of the visiting bees, the gold of the sun and the panting breath of the breeze when the inaudible voice of it all came to her. She saw a dust-bearing bee sink into the sanctum of a bloom; the thousand sister-calyxes arch to meet the love embrace and the ecstatic shiver of the tree from root to tiniest branch creaming in every blossom and frothing with delight.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Elizabeth Funderbirk
“...Love can give you the most exhilarating wonderful highs at times...
...Then there will be dives that will take all you have just to hold on...
