On Love's Nature

And so love is in itself an incomprehensible being, and from eternity to eternity it stands unchangeable, and it is the greatest of all things, and its virtue is the chiefest good ; it is a fountain which abounds in largeness, and fulness, and in freeness, it opens itself in tenderness, and with its own virtue it doth supply the wants of all that thirst for it, and it gives forth a measure of itself, in the openings of itself, which as a stream of pure water doth reach the thirsty soul.
~ The Berean, 1827
