On love

Love. What a small word we use for an idea so immense and powerful it has altered the flow of history, calmed monsters, kindled works of art, cheered the forlorn, turned tough guys to mush, consoled the enslaved, driven strong women mad, glorified the humble, fueled national scandals, bankrupted robber barons and made mincemeat of kings.

Always is to joy inclin’d,
Lawless, wing’d and unconfin’d,
And breaks all chains from every mind.
—William Blake

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.

It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13)
