The Declaration of Unquenchable Love

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned. – Song of Solomon 8:6-7.

Love is a flame and fire that burns ever.

Love cannot be quenched.

True love needs no assurances.

True love knows itself and its own.

Love is the fire that enthuses.

Love is a fire that ever burns higher, always upward.

True love is the end as well as the beginning.

True love feeds upon itself and not upon the loved one.

True love magnifies the one whom it loves.

Love asks no favors and gives all.

Love's strength lies in its self-sustaining ability.

Love's keynote is a deep, abiding devotion to the one who is loved.

True love burns steadfastly under all conditions, joy or sorrow, separation or unity.

True love counts no effort too great nor too small, and no task too hard nor too long.

True love is lifting, opens all doors, and is all-compelling in its power to unite.

True love is never conscious of giving, but like sunshine, shares itself with all.

True love withstands all separation and lives forever.
