Yes, I am a Free Lover.
I have an inalienable, constitutional and natural right to love whom I may,
to love as long or as short a period as I can;
to change that love every day if I please,
and with that right neither you nor any law you can frame have any right to interfere.
Ik kan niet zo heel erg in bezit denken. Onze relatie is zó teder, maar er is geen strijd van: ‘bij wie moet ik vandaag zijn?’. Die hebzucht van bij wie ik het meeste moet zijn, overheerst niet.
I reserve the right to love many different people at once,
and to change my prince often.
True Love in this differs from gold and clay,
That to divide is not to take away.
When you like a flower, you just pluck it.
But when you love a flower, you water it daily.
If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.
A world where it is safe to love is a world where it is safe to live
