The Giiving Tree
The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, is about a tree who loves a boy unconditionally. As the boy grows up, he visits the tree less and less. When the boy does visit the tree, he only goes to ask for help. Although the tree has little to give, she gives the boy all that she has until she has nothing left but her love for the boy.

I would use The Giving Tree for a lesson on character education integrated with science. Two activities that students can do are write a letter to a person whom they appreciate and label the parts of the tree from the story and how the boy used them or how they would use them. The LEXILE reading level is 530L.

If you're planning on sending a love letter or leaving a surprise love note for your beloved one(s), we do hope that the following 30 bookish love quotes from literature will inspire you and put you in a romantic mood. 

 

 

What are you favorite literary love passages? Share them. With love. 

 

 

Do I love you? My god, if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches.William Goldman, The Princess Bride

There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

 

The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person. – Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

 

I won’t ever leave you, even though you’re always leaving me. – Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife

To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life. - Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

 

I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten.

I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one. My reason for life. - Ian McEwan, Atonement

I have waited for this opportunity for more than half a century, to repeat to you once again my vow of eternal fidelity and everlasting love. - Gabriel García Márquez, Love In The Time Of Cholera 

 

 

Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same. - Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear. - Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

 

 

Who, being loved, is poor? - Oscar Wilde, A Woman of No Importance

 

 

Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps…perhaps…love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.

- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

 

I wish I knew how to quit you.Annie Proulx, BrokeBack Mountain

 

The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you. - Markus Zusak, The Book Thief


Every lover is, in his heart, a madman, and, in his head, a minstrel.

- Neil Gaiman, Stardust

I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly and then all at once. - John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

 

 

I cannot let you burn me up, nor can I resist you. No mere human can stand in a fire and not be consumed. -A.S. Byatt, Possession

 

 

She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It's good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.Toni Morrison, Beloved

Visionary X Starlight by Yumoyori Wilson Valentine’s Day Blitz & Giveaway


Visionary X Starlight- Valentine’s Day 
Yumoyori Wilson
Publication date: February 10th 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Two different worlds – one unique connection – a whole lot of love.
Valentine’s Day – an annual holiday dedicated to love, promoting couples to emphasize their love through gifts and celebration.
Makoto Heart spent her life trapped in a dark cell, never knowing the day existed or experienced love until her star knights. When three of her star knights – Kai, Marcus, and Elias – have the opportunity to bring her to Earthala, she’s given the chance to enjoy a four-day countdown to the celebration.
Scarlet Sinclair has dreaded February 14th. Her feelings stemmed from the reminder that she usually spent the day sitting alone, binge watching chick flicks on Netflix and devouring chocolate she bought for herself. But, this year would be different – Ethan, Junho, and Christian make a promise to prove to her that Valentine’s has more benefits than chocolate, and they’d use the next four days to prove it.
Will they each get more love than they bargained for?
Recommended for 18+ audience, containing mature sexual content, violence and strong language. THERE WILL BE F/F in this book. If that is not your cup of tea, PLEASE do not read it.
NOTE: Visionary X Starlight is written in CANADIAN ENGLISH – meaning both American and British English is used.
EXCERPT:
“Meow.”
Christian groaned while I turned my head, noticing Moonlight sitting on the two-seat sofa— his turquoise eyes staring at Christian.
“Please don’t tell me you took his doll again,” I huffed.
“I don’t have it,” Christian argued.
“Why is Moonlight here then?” I countered.
“Cause he loves interrupting me when I want to have some damn alone time with you,” Christian argued.
I sighed, patting my thighs.
Moonlight hopped off the chair to the floor, making his way to where I sat in Christian’s lap. He leaped onto my lap, sitting patiently as I pet him gently.
“Hey you. Why are you interrupting us when Christian doesn’t have your doll?” I cooed, enjoying the feel of Moonlight’s soft black fur.
“Meow.”
He hid it, but it’s not here,” Risuki mumbled in my mind.
I sighed, turning to Christian who grumbled under his breath.
“Junnie has it,” he admitted reluctantly.
“Why does Junnie have his doll?”
“Because I put it in her purse.”
“Because?”
“Your familiar has a vendetta against me and is trying to ruin the one day I have with my girlfriend before Valentine’s Day and I didn’t want him crashing it, again,” Christian complained.
I blushed, feeling touched by his frustration regarding our lack of alone time.
Well, he shouldn’t have hidden it. Could have asked nicely,” Risuki mumbled.

Author Bio:
Yumoyori Wilson is from Toronto, Ontario. She loves to sleep and write her days away. She works at night as a registered nurse. She has a little addiction to bubble tea and coffee but loves to workout. She has big plans for the writing world and can't wait to share them with everyone.
