But my favourite song about TRUE love / the potential of polyamory is in Basque:
"Txoria, Txori"
Hegoak ebaki banizkio
nerea izango zen,
ez zuen aldegingo.
Bainan, honela
ez zen gehiago txoria izango
eta nik...
txoria nuen maite.
- Joxan Artze / Mikel Laboa
Bird, Little Bird (my translation from another's translation into Spanish)
If I had cut her wings,
She would be mine,
She wouldn't have flown away.
But in that case
She would have ceased to be a bird.
And I...
I loved the bird.
If I can't dance, I want no part in your Revolution.
- Emma Goldman Anarchist and Polyamorous par excellence
The person who says something is impossible should not interrupt the person who is doing it.
- old Chinese proverb
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
~ Anais Nin
I'd rather have a broken heart / Than have a heart of stone.
- from "Boundless Love (A Polyamory Song)" by Jimmy Hollis i Dickson
