In the process of writing my recent book Love Cycles: The Five Essential Stages of Lasting Love, I collected the most profound, compelling and even surprising quotes about love that I could find, and thought a lot about how they corresponded to different stages of relationships.  I’d like to share...

Blue Morpho butterflies. "The genetic code that is responsible for the wings of a butterfly is also *the same gene code* for the beating of the human heart. [...] It seems like Nature discovered this information 300 million years ago and then She said to herself, 'I am going to store it and then one day I will use it for the human heart because that is where longing is, our deepest yearnings are, where love is, compassion is.'" ~Deepak Chopra

Christina’s makeup sensibility offers a brilliant blend of her personal taste and the industry’s leading innovations. More lip art:

“Beating your wings and feathers, you broke free from this cage. Rising up to the sky you attained the world of the Soul." —Rumi (Photo: Hummingbird On Sunflower by John Kolenberg) ..*

A quote I made up (I haven't seen it anywhere before) inspired by my daughter...FLY To The Beat of YOUR OWN WINGS!!! Gelli Print Journal Page...

"By day the bat is cousin to the mouse. He likes the attic of an ageing house. His fingers make a hat about his head. His pulse beat is so slow we think him dead. He loops in crazy figures half the night. Among the trees that face the corner light. But when he brushes up against the screen, We are afraid of what our eyes have seen. For something is amiss or out of place, When mice with wings can wear a human face." By: Theodore Roethke

"I wish I could explain your eyes, or how the sound of your voice gives me butterflies. How your smile makes my heart skip a beat and how every time I'm with you, I feel so complete."
