is it possible

.


.
Is it possible for the rose to say, 
"I will give my fragrance to the good people who smell me, 
but I will withhold it from the bad?" 
Or is it possible for the lamp to say, 
"I will give my light to the good people in this room,
 but I will withhold it from the evil people"? 
Or can a tree say, 
"I'll give my shade to the good people who rest under me,
 but I will withhold it from the bad"? 
.
These are images of what love is about.
