Quotes about delight


1. Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.
- Helen Keller

2. Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.
- Alexander Smith

3. 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. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
- Anonymous, Holy Bible: New International Version
