Here's a quote from Alexander Smith. It was the Cryptoquote puzzle in today's newspaper:
"Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others and the delight in the recognition."
Hmmmmm......... I am thinking now of two loves. The first, more than 45 years ago, was so overwhelming and magnetic that I can recognize nothing of myself in him, even to this day.
The second was the man I married--the one I thought completed me. He had qualities I thought I lacked, like common sense and good judgment. It worked.
Strange and mysterious thing, that "love."
