" Je ne parle que des passions de feu, car pour les autres,
elles se mêlent souvent ensemble, et causent une confusion très-incommode" - Pascal

Love-Made in everythin   g which can be seen
hid   den forces of love
are   gui    ding.

the powers of greed & hate
are awe    sum
yet love    's    an    in    visible    gravity
in    spiring    one    ness
&    les     sen   ing fr    ail    ity

you may con    sider
it fool    ish    or    naive
but the best that you are
comes   frum    a   capa
city   to   luve   &   believe
