Famous quotes containing the words love and/or bring:
“The opposite of love is not to hate but to separate. If love and hate have something in common it is because, in both cases, their energy is that of bringing and holding togetherthe lover with the loved, the one who hates with the hated. Both passions are tested by separation.”
—John Berger (b. 1926)
“I am going to send an angel in front of you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 23:20.
