The Beauty of Loneliness
How happy the blameless vestals' lot?
The world forgetting by the world forgot...
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind,
Each prayer accepted and each wish resigned.....

- Alexander Pope
Love is always patient and kind.
It is never jealous.
Love is never boastful nor conceited.
It is never rude or selfish.
It does not take offense and is not resentful.
Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins...
...but delights in the truth.
It is always ready to excuse,
to trust, to hope...
...and to endure...
...whatever comes...................
