Happy Valentine’s Day! Here at Opportunity, we know that romantic love is not the only form that we should be celebrating. There is also agape love–an unlimited loving kindness, charity, towards all people. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. put it, it’s “the love of God operating in the human heart.”
In that spirit, we wish you love, peace and kindness on this and every Valentine’s Day. Here are a few thought-provoking quotes that expand the meaning of love and hopefully inspire you to agape love today.
- Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
- To love another person is to see the face of God.
-Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
- Where there is love there is life.
