3. A definition of love

What is love? It is all that is good.
It is neither strife nor contention,
it never hurts but only blesses,
it only gives and bereaves you nothing,
it is one-sidedly positive and constructive,
it is what builds and never destroys,
so quarrel and criticism is never out of love.
It is creativeness of life
and the very essence of life
and all that it has to live on
and therefore so brittle and delicate.
So take care and nourish your love
as life's most precious treasure,
and the fundamental generosity of love
will reward you without measure.
