Love – Emmitt Fox

Standard

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer.

There is no disease that enough love will not heal.

No door that enough love will not open.

No gulf that enough love will not bridge.

No wall that enough love will not throw down.

And no sin that enough love will not redeem.

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble.

How hopeless the outlook.

How muddled the tangle.

How great the mistake.

A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

And if you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful person in the world.
