What a beautiful quote by Willa Cather!
Another version of this quote replaces wishes with miracles.
I'm not sure which one is the correct quote.
As I came across the quote, I pondered the meaning although I have run across it many times through the years and never gave it a thought.
My first interpretation was "with love comes faith."
My second interpretation was "is love enough?"
"Enough for what?"
Perhaps Willa was conveying the message that even the greatest love does not bring happiness, but we can always hope for a miracle? Or was she conveying another message about being patient with love?
Could it be that she had a great love for someone who did not return the same degree of love, but she could wish for her desires?
There is a popular quote that has been used in song lyrics through the years . . .
"love can move mountains."
Could we interpret the meaning of the Willa's quote to mean the same thing?
Sometimes I analyze and think too much!
The quote just got me to thinking about what her thoughts and feelings were when she wrote it . . . and what was going on in her life at the time. Love and how it affects us fascinates me!
