  1. Glad you included Antoine's quote: " is two people looking in the same direction...."

  2. I am glad you like that particular quote. To me that could be about pulling together as team-work, common goals and aspirations or activities together. Plus dreams for the future and an imagined long-term relationship or an imagined marriage going well... Only by going in the same direction together will things work out.

  3. great idea for you to gathered it! I like William Blake's quotations, :)

  4. Hello again Zezebel. I'm gald you enjoyed this blog post. There are so many really good William Blake quotes, not just about love, but about wisdom as well.

    Take care.

  5. “Eternity is love with the production of time”
    -William Blake. Personally I like this Author. Thanks for sharing.
