A Quote by Henry Drummond on love

in

Eternal life also is to know God, and God is love.  This is Christ's own definition.  Ponder it.  "This is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent."  Love must be eternal.  It is what God is.  On the last analysis, then, love is life.  Love never faileth, and life never faileth, so long as there is love.  That is the philosophy of what Paul [1 Corinthians 13] is showing us; the reason why in the nature of things Love should be the supreme thing - because it is going to last, because in the nature of things it is an Eternal Life.  It is a thing that we are living now, not that we get when we die; that we shall have a poor chance of getting when we die unless we are living now.

A Quote by Henry Drummond on love

in

It [temper] is not in what it is alone, but in what it reveals. This is why I speak of it with such unusual plainness. It is a test for love, a symptom, a revelation of an unloving nature at bottom. It is the intermittent fever which bespeaks unintermittent disease within; the occasional bubble escaping to the surface which betrays some rottenness underneath; a sample of the most hidden products of the soul dropped involuntarily when off one's guard; in a word, the lightning form of a hundred hideous and un-Christian sins.

A Quote by Henry Drummond on needs, wonder, and world

I wonder why it is that we are not all kinder to each other than we are. How much the world needs it! How easily it is done!
