“Love is our most unifying and empowering common spiritual denominator. The more we ignore its potential to bring greater balance and deeper meaning to human existence, the more likely we are to continue to define history as one long inglorious record of man’s inhumanity to man.”

Hannah Brencher
“Agape" is loving a person for exactly who they are - not who we hope they'll become with enough fixing. It's this idea that every person has their layers, so you can never confine a person to only what you know about them from the first glance. It's stacked on the premise that to love anyone is to hope in them always.”
Hannah Brencher, If You Find This Letter: My Journey to Find Purpose Through Hundreds of Letters to Strangers

“In its essence, Elemental, the Power of Illuminated Love, maintains we are all on a quest to experience qualities of compassion and acceptance capable of helping to sustain both the individual and the larger society. Because such a journey tends to take place even more within than without, the visual imagery, words, and music of ILLUMINATED LOVE incorporates both levels of that reality.”
Aberjhani, Splendid Literarium: A Treasury of Stories, Aphorisms, Poems, and Essays

“How can we know something that surpasses or is beyond knowledge? How can we know something that is beyond words?... We can and do use words to point to all of our human experiences. However, the experience of "God as Agape" is beyond words, beyond the limitations of our minds.”

“The terrible poverty of pride is that there is nothing that can be taken in selfishness which will exceed what is received when nothing is expected and everything is offered.”
James Castleton, MD, Mending of a Broken Heart

“Agape is a sobering love to receive, for it says, ‘If I cannot love you for who you are, then I will do so despite who you are.’ It is unique in that it is able to love those whom it cannot like.”
James Castleton, MD, Mending of a Broken Heart

“Agape makes “neighbors” out of those who would otherwise be our enemies.”
James Castleton, MD, Mending of a Broken Heart

“Agape makes 'neighbors' out of those who would otherwise be our enemies.”
James Castleton, MD, Mending of a Broken Heart

“Immature love seeks to change the beloved for its own benefit. Mature love seeks to see the beloved change for their benefit. Sacrificial love recognizes that there may be wounds so deep that their beloved may not be able to change. It is content to care, sometimes without the contentment which is to be found in being cared for.”
James Castleton, MD, Mending of a Broken Heart

“We almost always undervalue the significance of the Victory at the Cross.But as our understanding is gradually enlightened, we are continuously awed at how much the Father hath loved us”

“Kuna aina tatu za upendo hapa ulimwenguni. Kuna upendo wa ‘agape’, upendo kati ya Mungu na binadamu na kati ya binadamu na binadamu mwenzake lakini hao binadamu shuruti wawe marafiki wa msalaba wa Yesu Kristo. Aidha kuna upendo wa ‘phileo’, upendo kati ya mtu na mtu au kati ya mtu na kitu au kati ya mtu na jambo; na kuna upendo wa ‘philadelphia’, upendo wa wanachama wa mashirika ya siri ambapo mtu humpenda mwenzake kama ndugu yake wakati si ndugu yake. Heri upendo wa ‘agape’ kuliko upendo ajmaina.”

“Mungu ni baba yetu wa kiroho. Hivyo basi, tunajua ya kuwa upendo wake umehifadhiwa ndani ya mioyo yetu. Kwa hiyo, kila mtu ana upendo wa ‘agape’ kwa kiasi fulani; lakini si upendo kamili. Upendo wa ‘agape’ kati ya binadamu na binadamu unahusiana na upendo wa kujitolea kwa ajili ya binadamu wengine. Kila mtu ana kiasi fulani cha upendo huo. Mtu akitaka awe na upendo kamili wa ‘agape’ sharti awe mtiifu na mnyenyekevu mbele za Mungu, na mbele ya binadamu wenzake, sharti ampende Mungu, na sharti ampende jirani yake kama anavyoipenda nafsi yake mwenyewe.”

“Agape love is strengthened by the person who expresses it - not by the person who receives it. In fact, the person who receives agape love does not have to show any appreciation at all.”
