flaming tongues

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

-Robert Robinson, Hymn: Come Thou Fount

you shall love

“The commandment is that you shall love, but ah, if you will understand yourself and life, then it seems that it should not need to be commanded, because to love people is the only thing worth living for, and without this love you are not really living. ”

-Soren Kierkegaard, Works of Love
