Going through My Essays, I dusted off a couple of quotes I had written about in college. Good stuff!
“Love is a high inducement for individuals to ripen, to strive to mature in the inner self, to manifest maturity in the outer world, to become that manifestation for the sake of another. This is a great, demanding task; it calls one to expand one’s horizon greatly. . .It is the final goal, perhaps one which human beings as yet hardly ever seek to attain.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke, “Letters to A Young Poet”
“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing.”
(I Corinthians 13:2)
