Is but a guest.“

„Love is a gracious host to his guests though to the unbidden his house is a mirage and a mockery.“

—  Khalil Gibran Lebanese artist, poet, and writer 1883 - 1931
Context: Love is a gracious host to his guests though to the unbidden his house is a mirage and a mockery. Now you would have me explain the miracles of Jesus. We are all the miraculous gesture of the moment; our Lord and Master was the centre of that moment. Yet it was not in His desire that His gestures be known. John At Patmos: Jesus The Gracious

„Love seldom haunts the breast where learning lies,
And Venus sets ere Mercury can rise.“

„The love of man and woman is the beginning of the love of God.“

—  Barry Long Australian spiritual teacher and writer 1926 - 2003
Context: The love of man and woman is the beginning of the love of God. You can realise God within like many men have done. It's one of the rarest things on earth to realise God, but everybody seems to think that that's the end. Where I come from, realising God was the easy part of it. That God of love which is already here anyway - who wouldn't be able to realise it? The difficult part is to bring that God into this world where God or love is not, into that body listening to these words and this body speaking them. That's the task.
