From a letter by Mark Twain to Clara Spaulding, August 20, 1880:
There isn’t time, so brief is life, for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account; there is only time for loving, and but an instant, so to speak, for that.
He gave me a yummy sandwich from the Walpole Grocery and these beautiful tulips that are sure to bloom and brighten our home over the coming days.
I gave him brownies, and these cute little brownie bites that I discovered on Pinterest.
Despite its commercial nature, it isn’t an entirely bad thing to have a whole day devoted to love. If there’s something we need more of in this world, I can’t think of anything we need more of than love.
