Words of Wisdom Wednesday



"It is love in old age, no longer blind, that is true love.  For love's highest intensity doesn't necessarily mean its highest quality.  Glamour and jealousy are gone; and the ardent caress, no longer needed, is valueless compared to the reassuring touch of a trembling hand.  Passersby commonly see little beauty in the embrace of young lovers on a park bench, but the understanding smile of an old wife to her husband is one of the loveliest things in the world."  - Booth Tarkington
