The art of life is to live in the present moment and to make that moment as perfect as we can by the realization that we are the instruments and expression of God himself
– Emmet Fox

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer: no disease that love will not heal: no door that enough love will not open…It makes no difference how deep set the trouble: how hopeless the outlook: how muddled the tangle: how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.
– Emmet Fox

If you could only love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world.

Love is an activity, not a passive affect; it is a “standing in,” not a “falling for.” In the most general way, the active character of love can be described by stating that love is primarily giving, not receiving.
– Erich Fromm

Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.

I hope you live a life you are proud of; if you find you are not, I hope you find the strength to start over all over again.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald

All life is just a progression toward, and then a recession from, one phrase – I love you.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald

Her face was sad and lovely with bright things in it.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald

I wasn’t actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald

I’m not sentimental–I’m as romantic as you are. The idea, you know, is that the sentimental person thinks things will last–the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won’t.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
