    This poem ??
    I found this poem recently in a magazine and if you have a Daughter getting married soon, you may find you would like to "Quote" this in some way !

    It is not enough to love passionately, you must also love well.
    A passionate love is good, doubtless, but a Beautiful love is better.
    May you have enough strength as gentleness, may it lack nothing, not even forebearance and let ye even a little compassion be mingled with it, you are human, and because of this, capable of much suffering.
    If then, something of compassion does not enter into the feelings you have, one for the other, these feelings will not always befit all the circumstances of your lives together, they will be like festive roads that will not shield you from wind and rain.
    We love truely only those we love, even in their weakness and poverty.
    To forebear, to forgive, to console, that alone is the science of love.


    I thought this was lovely and wanted to share !!
