U is for …


 My 2015 A to Z Challenge Theme is Quotes & Lines from Literature. Each day I will be posting a favorite quote or a few lines from well known short stories, poems or novels, with the letter of the first name as the A to Z. I’ll have a short write up with each quote, but each quote can also serve as a writing prompt for readers or myself.  I may write a poem or flash fiction based on that quote, or just throw it out there as inspiration. Hopefully you’ll join me in this adventure! I’ll try to include some of my favorite blog finds as I move through the challenge as well.

 I will admit I thought of the author and not the quote so I had to search for a quote to get my U post in, but what a lovely one to stumble upon! This quote comes from Eco’s book, The Name of The Rose.

Some may say love can make us crazy, or makes us do stupid things, or that it hurts. All may be true in some cases, but love also opens our hearts and minds in unbelievable ways. Love can show us a truth we might not otherwise see.

“Love is wiser than wisdom” is a more poetic way of saying what I’ve always believed – that sometimes you have to just listen to your heart. Your head can only know so much and get you so far. Your heart has to get you the rest of the way. 

If you aren’t trusting your heart sometimes, what’s the point? It’s all about love, baby. 😀 As the Beatles would say, it’s all you need.
