“Sincerity is an openness of heart. We find it in very few people. What we often see is only an artful pretense to win the confidence of others.” ~La Rochefoucauld, French philosopher
There was a time when the phrase “I love you” was almost sacred — reserved for special moments with lovers, spouses, nuclear family members, and our closest friends. Today, “I love you” is tossed around casually in text messages and shouted in public places to folks who haven’t yet earned our devotion. Like anything else that’s repeated until it becomes a cliche, “I love you” is losing its sincerity. Now we have to work harder to prove that we really mean it …. when we do. ~CL
