The Demands of Love


Here's another "Epiphanyish" thought for today. 
(The checks are mine.)

"Love will make demands on us.
(check)
It will question us from within.
(yep)
It will disturb us.
(double check)
Sadden us.
(God yes)
Play havoc with our feelings.
(triple check)
Harass us.
(sigh)
Reveal our superficialities.
(enough already)
But at last it will bring us to the light."
(Oh Lord! May it be so!)

-Carlo Carreto 1910-1988
