Love is for the paying of debts expecting nothing in return

Love is always a reminder of debts owed to life in the past. We gain nothing for the future by paying off these debts. […]

A man who knows that love is for the paying of debts expecting nothing in return, is a true Christian. To understand the nature of love — that is to be a Christian!
