Chapter 6, Page 16, Book 16

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not bridge, no wall that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem... It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough, you could be the happiest and most powerful being in the world…

Emmet Fox

June 16 - Love is the language everybody understands.

One can live
in this world
if one knows how to work
and how to love.

Leo Tolstoy

Love makes people willing to put even the most coveted things at stake. Love unifies through the only commonality needed to understand one another.

Love creates an inner warmth and willingness to be loving and kind to others and makes every one of life’s hardships and tragedies seem worth it.

Love provides a sense of purpose. It compels us so deeply you’d risk or give your life.

Love makes the coy outspoken and the outgoing coy and reforms the jaded and hopeless.

Love puts people in touch with their true selves. and accepts without condition.

Love embraces what is, and people as they are. It is unwavering with compassion and forgiveness.

Love is willing to let go if need be and connects people of all races and creeds.

Love unites countries and peoples otherwise wartorn and separate and it uncovers what’s most true.

Love makes people completely reform their ideas of what is attractive.

Love can provide convincing evidence of a higher being or at least of the concept of fate.

It closes personal distance and takes down otherwise unbreakable walls.

Love keeps people coming back to the thing that either has or had the potential to destroy them.

Love seems to change people, but really just unveils their true selves.

Love inspires and unfolds.

Love makes way for peace: sometimes with oneself, sometimes with others, but most often, with all the uncertainties that come with life.

If you have it [love], you don't need to have anything else.
If you don't have it, it doesn't matter much what else you have.

Sir James M. Barrie

Love can make you do things that you never thought possible.  Love saves. Love rescues. Love helps. Great things can always happen when there's love.

All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.

Leo Tolstoy

I'm so grateful there is still a lot of love in this world. Even with all the recent tragedies and loss of young innocent lives, it is amazing to read the stories of how people are rising up in love and helping others get through this sad tragic time. The world would be such a dark scary lonely place without love.

"Love inspires and unfolds." Got it!
I'm trying to be like my friend Betty and get here before I get the alert, since the alerts seem to come hours after you post.

But that aside, yes Love is THE LANGUAGE, using it transforms the gift-ed and the giver


"LOVE is the FABRIC of LIFE." This comment from your post says it all, " Love embraces what is, and people as they are. It is unwavering with compassion and forgiveness."
