Lewis (The Four Loves)

    This one is my most favorite quote from this post! You have a brilliant collection of quotes.

  5. Hi I am trying to recall a quote I once read which was something like this “true love is acceptance of all that was, is and can not be….” But it was a bit longer and more eloquently written! Any ideas?

    1. Good question, Helen.
      I’ve tried to find it on Google but didn’t find one that looks like yours.

      Check out those 2:
      True love is knowing a person’s faults, and loving them even more for them.
      Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another’s personhood.

      Let me know if you find it.
