Love never fails.
—1 Corinthians 13:8
To the radiant young royals standing at the altar in Westminster Abbey, the presiding Archbishop of York gave this sage counsel: “We wish you happiness, but you will not find happiness by seeking it. You will find it by scattering it. Let each of you make the other happy; and let both of you endeavor to compass the happiness of everybody about you; and, all unsought, happiness shall be your own.”
Love is others-centered: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs” (1 Cor 13:4–5).
People who neglect those virtues are controlled by offensive traits which poison and destroy relationships.
Happiness is a four-letter word: Love.
