FOR love, and beauty, and delight;
There is no death, nor change; their might
Exceeds our organs, which endure
No light, being themselves obscure.
Percy B. Shelley
AND yet the love that will be annihilated sooner than treacherous has already made death impossible, and affirms itself no mortal, but a native of the deeps of absolute and inextinguishable being.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
WE know but little now about the conditions of the life that is to come. But what is certain is that Love must last. God, the Eternal God, is Love. Covet therefore that everlasting gift, that one thing which it is certain is going to stand, that one coinage which will be current in the Universe when all the other coinages of all the nations of the world shall be useless and unhonoured. You will give yourselves to many things, give yourself first to Love. Hold things in their proportion. Hold things in their proportion.
HE doeth much that loveth much.
Thomas a Kempis
