Love is…

Love Conquers All.

Love is all you need.

Love is…

These sentiments are amazing, and filled with hope and joy and the future.

It’s bullshit. The words mean nothing, just words. Words we say when something bad happens. Words we forget days after until the next time something bad happens.

Words. Just words.

Words are powerful and amazing and awe inspiring. But without action, they mean little.

Typing, or saying Love means nothing.

Show your Love. Make your Love count. Find a way to take action on Love. Fill the world with Love. Accept the Love of others.

Love, and let Love.

Love is all we need, it does conquer all. But only if you take action, and prove it.

Remember this tomorrow. All hate is action.

Make Love more than a sentiment.

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats circa 1899
