Love is the ancestor of all spiritual values. It gives birth to them, and then is energized and vitalized by them; it incubates them, and then is magnified and immortalized through them. It does this with qualities like patience, persistence, happiness, courage. It joins with what it has already created, and in the process it receives back the life it gave—just as you receive love, loyalty and trust by giving them to others. What is love, what is not love, and what only looks like love? Seldom, so briefly, have these questions been answered with such beauty and elegance.
