“Love has its own time, its own season, and its own reasons
from coming and going. You cannot bribe it or coerce it or
reason it into staying. You can only embrace it when it
arrives and give it away when it comes to you.”

Oscar Hammerstein II

A bell is not a bell until you ring it;
A song is not a song until you sing it.
Love in your heart is not put there to stay;
Love is not love until you give it away.
