I think love is infinite - without a doubt! That, to me, simply means that it always there inside of us, never dries up (even though there are times we feel that way when hurting), and is accessible forever. It is infinite because of the fact that you can love, lose that love, and love again. It's not like we're thermometers with mercury inside us and if that thermometer breaks, we can't get the mercury back in. It is a bottomless pool because love is always there and is the connector among us and the people in our lives. The number of people we love isn't dependent on how much love we have, but how many people we choose to let in close enough to connect with that love. That infinite love.

Time, of course is limited. Our choices are limited. The number of people we can fit into our lives is limited. Love is not.
The world opens up... when you do.
