“A soul mate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communication and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace. This kind of relationship is so important to the soul that many have said there is nothing more precious in life.”
Thomas Moore

“It may help us, in those times of trouble, to remember that love is not only about relationship, it is also an affair of the soul.”
Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul: Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life

“Go where we may, rest where we will,
Eternal London haunts us still.”
Thomas Moore
