The writing on the top is from "How to Love" by Thich Nhat Hahn. It's a small, brief book of essays about love. I first learned about it through Brain Pickings (such a well-curated weekly newsletter). 

 He writes, "Friendship and loving kindness can last a very long time and continue to grow."

I think that's a beautiful sentiment.

Hope your midweek is going wonderfully.
