LE MUR DES JE T'AIME (The Wall of I love Yous)Ecards
send e cards in every language!Handwritten,calligraphy

In a world marked by violence and dominated by individualism, 
walls, like boundaries, are usually made to divide and separate 
peoples to protect them from one another.
On the contrary, LE MUR DES JE T'AIME 
(The Wall of I loveYous) is a link, a place of reconciliation,
a mirror which reflects an image of love and peace.

"All you need is love "
                                            ~John Lennon

We come to love not by finding a perfect person,
but by learning to see an
                 imperfect person perfectly.
                      -- Anonymous

Love is shown in your deeds, not in your words.
                      -- Fr. Jerome Cummings

Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.
                      -- Albert Einstein

We look forward to the time when the power to love ,
will replace the love of power.
Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
                      -- William Gladstone

Love is the great miracle cure.
Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.
                     -- Louise Hay

 Since love grows within you, so beauty grows.
For love is the beauty of the soul...
