We are not commanded (or forbidden) to love our mates, our children, our friends, our country because such affections come naturally to us and are good in themselves, although we may corrupt them.

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
Love is the beauty of the soul.

(on love) It's the only thing which allows men and women to stand in a world where gravity always seems to want to pull them down... bring them low... and make them crawl.
All my life I have had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I am here
