Today’s quote is provided by Paula Hinkson.
Man’s greatest earthly possession is the undemanding love of a wonderful woman.
All men seek it, but only the fortunate find it.
Today, at this point in my life, I find myself amongst the fortunate.
Paula explains why this is her favorite quote:
My favorite quote has a story behind it and has been one of my favorites for 30 years. When Doug and I were dating, he wrote this for me on a small piece of paper and handed it to me after taking me home one night. It really touched my heart. I still have it put away somewhere.
Now thirty years later, thinking about what it means is a bit different than it was in 1979. For one, the word “possession” does not sit well with me. 🙂 I would guess that whoever wrote it had to be a man, since women used to be considered “possessions.” And I think the quote is a realization to never take love for granted. I loved it back then and I still do. By the way, I couldn’t remember it word for word so I told Doug about your contest and asked him if he remembered the quote. Even after all these years, he wrote it down for me again. Isn’t that sweet?
