Overview

Love makes the world go around. Everyone needs it. From the Heart delivers love throughout the ages in a variety of verse ranging from the words of Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Maya Angelou to a Celtic vow and a Ming dynasty folk song.Love-it transcends space and time, culture and language. From the Heart is a collection of poems, blessings, songs, and doggerel dedicated to love from around the world. The use of color and magnificent illustrations add even more romance and significance to the words of such distinguished greats as Mahatma Gandhi, Pablo Neruda, William Shakespeare, and Dante. Here is a tender example:
From the I Ching:
When two people are at one
in their inmost hearts,
they shatter even the strength of iron or bronze.

And when two people understand each other
in their inmost hearts,
their words are sweet and strong,
like the fragrance of orchids.
With loving sentiments, From the Heart perfectly captures the delicate allure of love's memories: the first kiss, writing love notes while away, and completely trusting another person. Pairing thest thoughts with beautiful original art, From the Heart is the perfect gift for anniversaries, weddings, Valentine's Day, or just because you love someone.
