If I speak in human and angelic tongues* but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.a
And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.b
If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.c
* Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated,d
it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,e
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.f
* Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
I love you all dearly....
