Weekend Quote #29

“True Loues are ofte[n] sown, but seldom grow on ground.”

From Edmund Spencer's epic poem, Faerie Queene. I won't pretend I truly understand the meaning, and it may mean a lot of things as well, but I will just explain what it means for me.

There are times when we love truly and sincerely, and yet the person we love just don't feel the same way. It's like seeds that are sown in the ground, but don't grow. So the lady who says this sentence perhaps means that people seldom love with equal love towards each other. We often love without being loved, or loved without loving.

That's all from me. Sharing yours?
