In the midst of valentines, chocolates and flowers, let's take a moment to reflect on some wise sayings about this thing called true LOVE...
"To love as Christ loves is to let our love be a practical thing and not a sentimental thing."
Sir Charles Villiers Stanford
"Faith, like light, should always be simple and unbending; while love, like warmth, should beam forth on every side, and bend to every necessity of our brethren."
"We can do no great things - only small things with great love."
"Love must be learned and learned again and again; there is no end to it. Hate needs no instruction, but waits only to be provoked."
Katherine Anne Porter
"Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars...Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
Martin Luther King Jr.
