In honor of Valentine’s Day, I offer you one of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite authors.  I ask you to consider that love requires forgiveness and that we, as humans, require both love and forgiveness:

“The choice to follow love through to its completion is the choice to seek completion within ourselves. The point at which we shut down on others is the point at which we shut down on life. We heal as we heal others, and we heal others by extending our perceptions past their weaknesses. Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who that person is. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is. Forgiving others is the only way to forgive ourselves, and forgiveness is our greatest need.”
