When you come right down to it, the secret of having it all is loving it all.
Who is the loving person? The loving person is the person who loves him or herself. I say this so often, and people say, “Oh yes, you’re so right,” but they don’t do it! You will never be able to love anyone else until you love yourself. Even With your Fat Thighs!
Love, which absolves no beloved one from loving,seized me so strongly with his charmthat, as thou seest, it does not leave me yet.
The true measure of loving God is to love Him without measure.
I like to think(it has to be!)of a cybernetic ecologywhere we are free of our laborsand joined back to nature,returned to our mammalbrothers and sisters,and all watched overby machines of loving grace.
Who loves a garden loves a greenhouse too.
When a person tells others Be good, he conveys to his hearers the feeling that he is good and they are not. When he says Be brave, honest and pure, he conveys to his hearers the feeling that the speaker himself is all that, while they are cowards, dishonest and unclean.To love God in the most practical way is to love our fellow beings. If we feel for others in the same way as we feel for our own dear ones, we love God.If, instead of seeing faults in others we look within ourselves we are loving God.
One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.
