The Value of LOVE…

Is there one among us who would not give all their gold, for a moment, in their arms, their loved ones one last chance to hold?

Now ask yourself; Of what does life’s true worth consist? Of what it is the value LOVE that no being can long resist?

The answers for me are these…

Life’s true and only worth; is the LOVE given and LOVE returned.

And love’s value is beyond measure of any paper, stone or metal, hoarded treasure…

just LOVE…
Kip Baldwin

“When we say, then, that pleasure is the end and aim, we do not mean the pleasures of the prodigal or the pleasures of sensuality, as we are understood to do by some through ignorance, prejudice, or willful misrepresentation. By pleasure we mean the absence of pain in the body and of trouble in the soul. It is not an unbroken succession of drinking-bouts and of merrymaking, not sexual love, not the enjoyment of the fish and other delicacies of a luxurious table, which produce a pleasant life; it is sober reasoning, searching out the grounds of every choice and avoidance, and banishing those beliefs through which the greatest disturbances take possession of the soul.” ~ Epicurus 341 B.C.-270 B.C.Image
