Enter into an Indian family and then you can understand love. Love does not wait for logic and is the easiest path of all.
The first test of love is that it knows no bargaining—true love cannot exist in an arrangement by two parties. Love is always the giver not the taker.
Love can conquer everything. It is the best medicine. It can take you to God because love is God.
It is all powerful. It knows no fear. It is the highest ideal
Love is higher than work, than yoga, than knowledge, although the highest forms of love and wisdom are in reality one.
Duty is seldom sweet. It becomes sweet only through love which shines only in freedom.
Every motion is a circle. Therefore do not hate anyone because that hatred which comes out of you must in the long run come back to you. When you send love it will naturally come back to you, completing the circle.
Love attracts human beings to each other, animals to animals and all of creation in an endless embrace.
Love manifests from the lowest atom to the highest being- it is omnipotent and all pervading.
Love is the one motive power that pervades the entire universe- unattached- yet shining in everything and without which the whole universe would fall to pieces in a moment.
