When youre in love you never really

When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.  ~Natalie Clifford Barney

A bell is no til you ring

A bell is no bell ’til you ring it,
A song is no song ’til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn?t put there to stay –
Love isn?t love
‘Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen (Reprise)"
