"One word frees us of all of the weight and pain of life: that word is LOVE."

Sophocles (496 BC - 406 BC)

All you need is love.

Unless you want to do things like breathe, eat, not freeze to death in winter, etc.

This is such a lovely hallmark sentiment.

Love eases pain, and makes the weight a bit easier to bear, but it does not erase it.

The only that that does that is death - and that's an option I'm not ready for yet.

We all pretty much agreed in the classroom that love certainly does make things easier but it is not some magic eraser that makes all the bad stuff just go away.

And, when you get right down to it, would we even want the bad stuff to vanish? We wouldn't be who we are if not for all of the experiences in our lives and that has to include the hard and painful times as well.

AND... love is a VERB.
