Love’s Return

“Love is life.  All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.  Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.  Everything is united by it alone.  Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.”

~Leo Tolstoy as quoted in The Spirit of Loving, edited by Emily Hillburn Sell.

One thought on “Love’s Return

  1. Kelly,

    Has anyone told you lately that they love you@

    I do.

    I did./

    You know what I mean. Thanks for this quote. Was Tolstoy a Buddhist? Maybe a “Hippie” way ahead of his time.
