Loving

“The beginning of love is the will to let those

we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to

twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do

not love what they are, but only their potential likeness

to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love

the reflection of ourselves we find in them”

– Thomas Merton
