If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing. – 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

It wasn’t that Jesus healed a leper but that he touched a leper, because no one touched lepers. – Shane Claiborne
I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. – Rita Rudner
