Love is in ignorance, for nobody can love in awareness. Children are loved because they are ignorant. They love everything and everything loves them.
When the snow falls, children cry with joy. The snow loves them too. They are loved because they love.
The winter cannot love the one who does not love it back. God therefore cannot speak to him through the mouth of winter.
God also speaks through the mouth of spring. In spring every child hears his whisper, when he is running round the meadow. God speaks there, for he does not know how to speak otherwise.
People who do not love, do not know that only that, to which you give yourself in the joy of your ignorance, gives back.
