A Loving Heart is the Truest Wisdom


Loving Heart

One of the most important lesson I’ve learned in life — one I wished I had learned in my twenties or thirties — I learned from author Charles Dickens and my partner in life, Linda.   

Years ago, I was paging through a book of quotes on my front porch in Denver, Colo. 

It’s then that I discovered a quote from novelist Charles Dickens, one of my favorite writers: “A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”  Although it seemed brilliant, and I was drawn to it, the quote created cognitive dissonance in me.  

My logical mind said: How could a loving heart be the truest wisdom?  

Love is an emotion.
