If I have not love, I am nothing…

(John MacDuff, “Thoughts for the Quiet Hour”, 1895)  

If I have not love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2

What absolute devotion of a beautiful soul that loses itself in the hallowed mission of radiating peace and joy and sympathy all around.

When other​s​ have failed to charm, many dull unsusceptible ears have been arrested and won by the music of kindness. By it . . .

  old-age renews its youth,
sick-pillows are smoothed,
burdens are eased,
tears are turned into smiles,
dirges are turned into songs.

Love is​​ the most irresistible.

Love is the golden key that fits all locks!

“If I have not love, I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2

“Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails!” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
