“We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it”—John Lennon.
Love is tender—it is like a plant that must be watered day by day to nurture it and make it grow. You don’t plant it and leave it without providing all the necessary ingredients needed to make it healthy.
If you don’t nurture love, it will soon dry and die. When you love someone, it is up to you to do all you can to make that person feel wanted and loved. You look after the one you love same way the one you love look after you; that is the way to true happiness.
