"Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love"
1 John 4,7-8, NIV

“The most frequent question I get when I give public talks is, “How will I know that this relationship is the one?” My answer has always been to pick someone with whom laughter comes easily to both of you.”
Gottman, John Mordechai (2014-10-10). Principia Amoris: The New Science of Love (Kindle Locations 1839-1841). Taylor and Francis. Kindle Edition.

"The LORD your God is with you. He is a hero who saves you. He happily rejoices over you, renews you with his love, and celebrates over you with shouts of joy.”
Zephaniah 3:17, God’s Word Translation

“Jesus brought into the world a new emphasis on love which he demonstrated in his own life and which he made clear he expected his disciples to produce too. For him love depends on the nature of the lover rather than that of the beloved. Jesus loved because he was a loving person, not because he found attractive qualities in those he loved. His followers are to be loving people, not simply to be drawn to attractive people.”
p492, Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels
