Washington's Gone Home for Christmas So Let's Think about the Season

Washington - Congress and President - have signed the two-month payroll tax reduction extension, packed their bags and fled for home. We can always hope they will come back in January wiser and ready to serve the American people's future. But, that's probably just stardust in our eyes sprinkled by the angels who light our way to the stable. 
What really matters this week that leads to the birth of Jesus?
Love. So let's take a look at what some of our fellow human beings have had to say about love. Agree...disagree...but pick your favorite and try to live up to its promise.

“Man loves little and often ; woman much and rarely.”  _____Unknown

“The perfect love affair is one conducted entirely by mail.” _____Unknown
“The bravest thing men do is love women.” _____Mort Sahl

“There is no remedy for love but to love more.” _____Henry David Thoreau

“Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.” _____Pierre de Beaumarchais

“True love begins when nothing is asked for in return.” _____Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” _____Mother Teresa

“Love sought is good, but given unsought is better.” _____Shakespeare

“Seduce my mind and you have my body; find my soul and I am yours forever.” _____Unknown

“I was afraid of love; I thought love took time like fine wine aging in a cellar. I was wrong. Love is there from the moment you see that person. Embrace it, let it grow, follow your heart, not your mind.” _____Unknown

“There are three things I have always loved and never understood : painting, music and women.” _____Fontenelle

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” ______John 3:16
