Definitions of Love
This collection of quotes has been extracted from another collection of wisdom quotes entitled “Unwinding the Wound: Wound Wisdom”, which I have dedicated to the “Disappeared that Live” and to Amnesty International. Material for “Unwinding the Wound: Wound Wisdom” comes from a diverse range of people and cultures, male and female, black and white, atheistic and religious, famous and infamous, royal and common, leaders and their partners, and so on. In that collection of 3000, you may recognize some philosophers whose mirror is indeed dimly lit, like Socrates, Solomon, Jesus, Paul of Tarsus, and some from more recent times, such as President John F. Kennedy, Muhammad Ali, the Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa, novelists etc.
I have deliberately not identified each thought to a particular person, or highlighted any, as really, these sayings express universal wisdom, which should be available to all, from cradle to the grave, and given equal emphasis. Nor have I slavishly adhered to “exact” wordings, especially if such has fallen out of common usage.
Some of the quotes have come from books, songs, or have been heard on the radio, or T.V., and some I have to admit, come from myself. I challenge you to find one you can absolutely disagree with. All of them hold true, or at least, to a very large extent. I trust you will enjoy this thought provoking challenge.
The great bulk of thinking comes from common folk, and those who have dared to be different, and have lived out their own dream, to be remembered with gratitude by those who follow in their footsteps. These unknown contributors to this universal wisdom deserve no lesser treatment than the others.
I believe that all of the contributors would be pleased to have been able to make a contribution to humanity’s understanding in this combined work.
