“The course of true love never did run smooth.”
William Shakespeare A Midsummer’s Night Dream
In honor of Valentine’s Day week, I thought I would share one of my favorite quotes about love. While I want to believe in the fairy tale versions of love, I must remind myself that we humans make mistakes. No white knight on a horse is going to come save you and marry you and live happily ever after. We must remind ourselves that we must work at love. We must face those obstacles and fight. Conquering those obstacles will yield great love. But it is not a given; it must be earned.
