Quote: The best things in life.

“The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.”

– Robert Louis Stevenson

#1 Love Quote

James Baldwin, posit that “Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.” Love then is powerful, deeper than feelings and a mystery; a divine mystery. To buttress my point, here are some of Love’s attributes:

  • Love never gives up.
  • Love cares more for others than for self.
  • Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
  • Love doesn’t strut,
  • Doesn’t have a swelled head,
  • Doesn’t force itself on others,
  • Isn’t always “me first,”
  • Doesn’t fly off the handle,
  • Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
  • Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
  • Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
  • Puts up with anything,
  • Trusts God always,
  • Always looks for the best,
  • Never looks back,
  • But keeps going to the end.

Love is centered around the premise of an ultimate sacrifice, an act so succinctly captured by Amy Carmichael; “You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.”

So drum roll please, here is my #1 love quote: “For God so LOVED the world that He GAVE His Only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 NKJV
True love is about the ultimate sacrifice, the act of giving the best. An example clearly modeled by God for humanity. This example works for me…how about you ? Well, enjoy your day and do make love a lifetime commitment and not just a day’s event.
