"Love endures long and is patient and kind;
love is never envious nor boils over with jealousy...
It is not conceited, arrogant and inflated with pride...
It does not rejoice in injustice and unrighteousness,
but rejoices when right and truth prevail...
Love bears up under anything and everything that comes...
Love never fails..."
1 Corinthians 13:4,5,6,7,8,
Love Carved In Stone
Thou wouldst be loved?-then let thy heart
From its present pathway part not!
Being everything which now thou art,
Be nothing which thou art not.
So with the world thy gentle ways,
Thy grace, thy more than beauty,
Shall be an endless theme of praise,
And love-a simply duty.
"A Simple Duty"
Edgar Allen Poe
