Only when you are lost can love find itself in you without losing its way.
True love grows by sacrifice and the more thoroughly the soul rejects natural satisfaction the stronger and more detached its tenderness becomes.
Love is the only cement that can hold this broken community together.When I am commanded to love, I am commanded to restore community, to resist injustice, and to meet the needs fo my brothers.
we wouldn't ask why a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals, in turn, we would all celebrate its tenacity, we would all love its will to reach the sun, well, we are the roses, this is the concrete and these are my damaged petals, dont ask me why, thank god, and ask me how.
This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.
What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.
People with no morals often considered themselves more free, but mostly they lacked the ability to feel hate or love.
A love of books, of holding a book, turning its pages, looking at its pictures, and living its fascinating stories goes hand-in-hand with a love of learning.
But you know, it isn't designed. Love just shows up and you go, "Oh, wow, this is going to be a hayride and a half."
If we are bold, love strikes away the chains of fear from our souls.
We all have the same God, we just serve him differently. Rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, oceans all have different names, but they all contain water. So do religions have different names, and they all contain truth, expressed in different ways forms and times. It doesn't matter whether you're a Muslim, a Christian, or a Jew. When you believe in God, you should believe that all people are part of one family. If you love God, you can't love only some of his children.
Love, as life, is a journey. Finding true love for the ever after is an amazing achievement.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.
God doesn't look at how much we do, but with how much love we do it.
Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease of fear; only love can do that. Hatred paralyses life; love harmonises it. Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.
He that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
He who does not enjoy solitude will not love freedom.
He who is filled with love is filled with God himself.
The truth is cruel, but it can be loved and it makes free those who love it.
There is a Law that man should love his neighbor as himself. In a few hundred years it should be as natural to mankind as breathing or the upright gait; but if he does not learn it he must perish.
Love is blind, but friendship closes its eyes.
Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible.
Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion
that each include the other,
each is enriched by the other.
We find rest in those we love, and we provide a resting place in ourselves for those who love us.
