Love is swift, sincere, pious, joyful, generous, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long-suffering, courageous, and never seeking its own; for wheresoever a person seeketh his own, there he falleth from love.
Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amid joy.
If a lecturer, he wishes to be heard;
if a writer, to be read. He always hopes for a public beyond that of the long-suffering wife.
