Poems about Life
Need of Loving
Poet Strickland Gillilan
Folk need a lot of loving in the morning;
The day is all before, with cares beset-
The cares we know, and they that give no warning;
For love is God's own antidote for fret.
Folk need a heap of loving at the noontime -
In the battle lull, the moment snatched from strife-
Halfway between the waking and the croontime,
While bickering and worriment are rife.
Folk hunger so for loving at the nighttime,
When wearily they take them home to rest-
At slumber song and turning-out-the-light time-
Of all the times for loving, that's the best.
Folk want a lot of loving every minute-
The sympathy of others and their smile!
Till life's end, from the moment they begin it,
Folks need a lot of loving all the while.
More verses on loving:
Love life and life will love you back.
Love people and they will love you back.
If God is the DJ,
then Life is the dance floor;
Love is the rhythm,
and You are the music."
Quotes about Life and Love
Care more than you have to; it matters from one human being to another. Be slower to judge. Be quicker to look deeper to sense the goodness in others.
Robert K. Cooper, The Other 90%
Sometimes it is the person closest to us who must travel the furthest distance to be our friend.
A loving relationship is one in which one can be open and honest with one another without the fear of being judged.
Leo F. Buscaglia, Ph.D., Loving Each Other, The Challenge of Human Relationships
The purpose of relationship is not to have another who might complete you, but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.
Neale Donald Walsch
Your relationships are all in how you think about the other people of your life. Your experience of all those people is only in your mind. Your feelings about your lovers come from your thoughts.
Today we are faced with the preeminent fact that, if civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships. . . the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world, at peace.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
