The "born for love" bench

.

B is for bench in Botanical Gardens of Jerusalem.
You can enlarge the photo once or twice to read to whom it is dedicated.

The bench proclaims

"We are all born for love.  It is the principle of existence, and its only end."
--Benjamin Disraeli

I dare to say that Disraeli was an optimist...

I like the idea of quotations on benches.

A great place to insert a quote that will attract quiet attention as you sit. Love it.

We should each be remembered for such a wonderful characteristic that we lavished on another. May his memory, and the bench, always be for a blessing.

That's is a cool quote on that bench. Disraeli understood life. Too bad not everyone agrees with him.

Hello, my friend, I will say, love is what binds us all together. Such a powerful word, and so important when things seem so bleak.
I hope you are well.. it's nice to be back. =)
