Love demands discretion, and discretion, in turn, is an art. If you are unfamiliar with the art of love, then you do not know how to love. Love overlooks the flaws of our brother. It forgives mistakes. It tolerates bad habits… It avoids criticism. It is oblivious to sarcasm. It disperses suspicions.It does not accept slander. It does not pass judgment or debase others publicly. It covers all shortcomings in a polite and brave manner… Love, through its simplicity and sincerity, is unaware of evil. It is crystal clear like water from a pristine lake. No fierce wave of evil or deceit can disturb it.
The person who loves is the greatest victor in the spiritual battle. He wins using a smile and kindness.
