The bridge is love

"But soon we shall die and all memory of those five will have left earth, and we ourselves shall be loved for a while and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning."
excerpt from the novel The Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder


  1. This makes me want to read this book - another to add to an ever growing list! Thanks for the recommendation!

  2. So beautiful. It reminds me of a photograph I took back in October.

  3. How beautiful and poignant, especially the last line.
