[QUOTE=HappiestManAlive;9468]I love the Heinlein quote (Stranger In a Strange Land) "Love doesn't divide, it multiplies".
I find that the more love thereis in my life, the greater my capacity to love in return. That makes sense to me and works for me. I can't fathom being another way.
Deleted some of your post when I quoted it.
But these two parts ring true for me as well (not that the rest didn't).
I think it's a hard lesson especially when the language we use (something my sister pointed out) makes it SOUND like it's "all or nothing". But the truth is that the more love that we give-the more we have to give.
