  6. Etymology of 愛 (love) is very interesting. It is hard to say what is 愛. Etymology gives me perfect translation. It is just amazing!!
    Ruma, have a great weekend!!

  7. Footfalls echo in the memory
    Down the passage which we did not take
    Towards the door we never opened
    Into the rose-garden.
