love...

A very good friend of mine posted a link to this letter on facebook written by American writer, John Steinbeck to his son back in 1958.  Such a beautiful tender letter about love and life. 
 
Read the whole letter here but some of my favourite bits:
  • First — if you are in love — that’s a good thing — that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.
  • Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it. The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.
  • If you love someone — there is no possible harm in saying so — only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.
  • Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.
  • It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another — but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.
  • And don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.
