“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
― Dr. Seuss
 
You pull something from 2 years ago? Anyways, love is capable of overcoming any obstacle. It can match up to hate. You also forgot about envy.
:rolleyes:

Hate is the loudest of all the competition. It screams both vocally and by action. It applies universally, and is one of the easiest to instill. Love, hope and fear cannot even begin to compare its strength. The only combatant to hate is love. As love is too rare and sparsed out, it cannot possibly stand a chance against the hate-lustful crowd.
 
His quote is wrong because love is all over the place.
Love may be the strongest of emotions, but it is too brittle to motivate universal action, and honest true love, that which does motivate those to action, is too rare to make any impact.
Honest true love:
Not a fake love, one that is found scraped into trees with initials encompassed by a heart, no. Not that petty love. I mean a genuine, heartfelt love. One that you feel in your dreams because it presses itself upon your mind every moment you try to concentrate on something else. I mean the love that pressures itself and impresses its weight upon your heart every time you hear their voice or see their face. I mean the love that despite what happens, through thick and thin, through the trials and the pain, through every beautiful and ugly aspect of life, you would consistently put your life on the line for said person.

Now for today's quote:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Ronald Reagan

A Christian reveals true humility by showing the gentleness of Christ, by being always ready to help others, by speaking kind words and performing unselfish acts, which elevate and ennoble the most sacred message that has come to our world.
Ellen G. White
