Beauty of Love, The
by: Author Unknown, A 5th Portion of Chicken Soup for the Soul
The question is asked, "Is there anything more
beautiful in life than a boy and a girl clasping clean hands
and pure hearts in the path of marriage? Can there be
anything more beautiful than young love?"
And the answer is given. "Yes, there is a more
beautiful thing. It is the spectacle of an old man and an
old woman finishing their journey together on that path.
Their hands are gnarled, but still clasped; their faces are
seamed, but still radiant; their hearts are physically
bowed and tired, but still strong with love and devotion for
one another. Yes, there is a more beautiful thing than
young love. Old love."
