Rare Book Cellar Published: Love is a short word but it contains everything. Love means the body, the soul, the life, the entire being. We feel love as we feel the warmth of our blood, we breathe love as we breathe the air, we hold it in ourselves as we hold our thoughts. Nothing more exists for us.
Love is not a word; it is a wordless state indicated by four letters. Can anyone provide me the original French text?

Anyway thanks for the help: Does anyone know where i could find an etext in english of the story "Little Rok" by Guy De Maupassant?

So I am open to suggestions and recomendations It premiered on July It was written and directed by Linnie Reedman, with music and lyrics composed by Joe Evans.
