If one's reasoning is not based on love, one is more likely to make wrong choices than right ones.

We've got the best of us, we've got the worst of us; and we've got everything in-between.
I have not seen any human society that sees love as a vice. There have been debates about who should be the first object or subject of our love; and we argue about priorities and preferences about love; some hold on to ancient wisdom, some would think wisdom is as new as fancy gadgets.
Love is desirable; we seek it and give it, and we proclaim it without shame.
If no voice is strong enough to smother the glory of love, could we be right to say that love is the ultimate guide?

  • Dec 8 2012: Good love can make this a heaven on earth. When we have been raised well and grown up a loving person, we can encourage everyone else to the same 'position'.

    "The essence of love is loving others than oneself, wishing to be one with them and devoting oneself to their happiness."

    Love is the base, the 'material', the motive.
    How we apply that, use it, is giving shape or form to that Love.
