"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and
with all your soul and with all your strength."
~ Deuteronomy 6:5 ~
"It is no great matter to associate with the good and gentle, for this is naturally pleasing to all, and every one willing enjoyeth peace, and loveth those best that agree with him. But to be able to live peaceably with hard and perverse persons, or with the disorderly, or with such as go contrary to us, is a great grace, and a most commendable and manly thing." ~ St. Thomas A. Kempis ~
"Thou shalt love the Lord the God with thy whole heart, with thy whole soul and with thy whole mind." This is the commandment of the great God, and He cannot command the impossible. Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand." ~ Mother Teresa ~
"Be diligent, after thy power, to do deeds of love, Think nothing too little, nothing too low, to do lovingly for the sake of God. Bear with infirmities, ungentle tempers, contradictions, visit, if thou mayest, the sick; relieve the poor, forego thyself and thine own ways for love, and He whom in them thou lovest, to whom in them thou ministerest, will own thy love, and will pour His own love into thee." ~ E. B. Pusey ~
"Will is to grace as the horse is to the rider."
~ St. Augustine ~
Anyone who does not love remains in death.
Anyone who hates his brother, is a murderer,
and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him."
~ I John 3:14-15
