^To love is to be open. To love is creative. Love does not say, "Mine, mine" but says, "Here. This is beautiful. Have some." Love is not jealous – fear of loss is jealous – love does not shut doors but opens them. Love is not delicate, but strong. Love is not destroyed by an unkind word, a wrong deed, a misunderstood situation – not even hate can destroy love.
Love is forgiveness. Love is fearless. Love is hope.
To destroy love completely, the only thing that truly can, is apathy. Apathy is a heart that beats no more.^
