I found this & decided to share it with my SP friends!
"Love is the fulfillment of all our works. There is the goal/; that is why we run: we run toward it, and once we reach it, in it we will find rest."
"If I put my own good name before the other's highest good, then I knew nothing of Calvary's love."
"But it is doubtless true, and evident from these Scriptures, that the essence of all true religion lies in holy love; and that in this divine affection, and an habitual disposition to it, and that light is the foundation of it, and those things which are the fruits of it, consists the whole of religion."
"A wise lover values not so much the gift of the lover as the love of the giver."
"When I have learned to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest that I do now."
"Joy is love exalted; peace is love in repose; long-suffering is love enduring; gentleness is love in society; goodness is love in action; faith is love on the battlefield; meekness is love in school; and temperance is love in training."
"Love is the greatest thing that God can give us for Himself is love; and it is the greatest thing we can give to God."
