By its very nature, hate destroys and tears down; by its very nature, love creates and builds up.
Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone-but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding.
Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; re-made all the time, made new.
It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not.
Another reason why we must love our enemies is that hate scars the soul and distorts the personality.
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
Many men are loved by their enemies, and hated by their friends, and are the friends of their enemies, and the enemies of their friends.
Marriage is not just spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash.
No one falls in love by choice, it is by chance. No one stays in love by chance, it is by work. And no one falls out of love by chance it is by choice.
It's nice when someone remembers every little detail about you, not because you keep reminding them but because they actually pay attention.
A real man never stops trying to show a girl he cares about her, even if he already has her.
The most attractive thing to me is effort. Someone who really wants to talk to me, see me, and make me a part of their day.
