excerpt | the way of love
love is patient, love is kind;
love does not envy;
love does not parade itself, it is not puffed up;
it is not arrogant, self-seeking, or rude.
it does not insist on its own way;
it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices with the truth.
love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
love never fails.
1 corinthians 13, 4-8
