The Wiser Love


He who is
in love
is wise
and is
becoming wiser,
sees newly
every time
he looks at
the object beloved,
drawing from it
with his eyes
and his mind
those virtues
which it possesses.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


Look for the bad and the ugly and you will find it.

Look for the love and you will become wiser

and you will see the virtue in everything

that the Great Creator has made.

God will give you the chance, the choice is yours,

avoid the mean and ugly and be wise enough

to seek out the virtuous, those who know love.

Love is to grow wiser.

Love is to help someone love themselves.
