Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on getting its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies, Aristotle.
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone ― we find it with another, Thomas Merton.
When you start a relationship, you should consider what is behind your love:
Normally, in any relationship, both partners are attracted to what the other has and does. This attraction is natural, logical, and it could be the prelude to a long, happy, and stable relationship. However, many couples stop here. They do not go much deeper. They are only attracted by what they can see and forget that the most important thing is in the heart, in the deepest feelings of respect, care, and love.
“The essential is invisible to the eye, one can only see clearly with the heart,” the little Prince.
Love is shown in the loving care of a parent, in the tenderness of a mother, in the small details of everyday life that may go unnoticed by many, in a sweet smile, a kind word, in active listening, etc. You want someone to “love” the “real” you, who you really are - Not just what you do or have.
