4. Love is the immortal flow of energy that nourishes, extends and preserves. its eternal goal is life. - Smiley Blanton (This one is so true, especially when caring for loved ones who are sick.)
5. Love is a second life; it grows into the soul, warms every vein, and beats in every pulse. - Joseph Addison
6. When you love someone, you take them into your heart, and that is surely why it hurts so much when we lose someone we love....because we lose a part of ourselves.

8. With every heartbeat, each grain of time; the candle burns low. With every moment our lives unwind, each breath more precious than the last.
Jeb Corliss - A man who has learned to embrace life to its fullest and live in the moment, for the moment. Jeb is a professional skydiver, base jumper and wingsuit flyer par-excellence. For as long as he can remember, Jeb has dreamed of flying. One of his earliest memories came when he was 6 and sitting in the back of his aunt's car watching birds jump from telephone poles, opening their wings and soaring. "When I get older, I'm going to do that," he said. His aunt explained that when he got older, he would realize that humans can't fly. "Maybe you can't" he replied, "but I'm going to." .... And he did and does! Read more about Jeb here!
