Love’s Return

“Love is life.  All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.  Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.  Everything is united by it alone.  Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.”

~Leo Tolstoy as quoted in The Spirit of Loving, edited by Emily Hillburn Sell.
