Friday's Five - On Love



The reason for loving God is God himself and how he should be loved is to love without limit – Bernard of Clairvaux.
It is possible to give without loving, but it is impossible to love without giving – Richard Braunstein.
Take away love and our earth is a tomb – Robert Browning.
Let us make God the beginning and end of our love, for he is the fountain from all good things flow and into him alone they flow back. Let him therefore be the beginning of our love – Richard Rolle,
Where there is love, there is a trinity; a lover, a beloved and a spring of love – Augustine of Hippo.

  2. Lovely, Alan. The Browning one strikes me the most as we are currently living in an apartment that feels so tomb-like to me. Thanks for commenting on my blog and for linking in your sidebar, what a nice surprise.

  3. I do like Braunstein's quote too. Love must have action tied with it. One cannot just love in a vacuum.
