For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
Where there is love there is life.
The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.
Love is the poetry of the senses.
Honore de Balzac
Why The Hell Not! are posts I’m going to do from time to time to remind, not only those of us with chronic illnesses, but for all of us to do something for ourselves.

WRITE A LOVE LETTER TO THE ONE YOU LOVE!
If you would like to give a special gift this holiday season, write a love letter. If you’re not sure how to write one or have trouble putting your feelings into words, The Art of Manliness has tips that anyone use. As they explain in their post:
…letters have special properties that no modern form of communication can duplicate. It’s something tangible that we touch and hold and then pass to another to touch and hold. And they are preserved and cherished in a way that text messages or email never will be.
Lovingyou.com not only has guidelines for writing a letter but also has a variety of love letters if you need some inspiration. And, if you are a poet, you could add your own poem as part of the letter or you can choose one from Best Poems Encyclopedia.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I thought I would find some quotes on love to share with everyone.

A love like that.
It lights the whole sky.
