The Learning of Love

By Simon Parke


This is a book of poetry, or proverbs, of observation of life, of learning about love.

"If you want an easy life, choose something simple
and relatively undemanding
Go and swim the English Channel…
But if you fancy a challenge,
choose the learning of love".

The needs to know ourselves loved and to give love to others are at the heart of each of us. But what is love, where and how do we find it? This book explores not just the romantic side of love, but challenges us to dig below the surface and come face to face with some difficult issues.

"There's a question at the back of my mind.
I don't want to face it. But here it is.
Which frightens me more:
The terror of not being loved?
Or the terror of loving?
The terror of the huge loneliness
of being special to no one?
Or the terror of committing myself wholeheartedly
to another with no guarantee of return?
Which in short is easier?
The isolation of the unloved?
Or the faith required to offer love?…."

Quote from The Question"
