Every person who is born, will leave some impact in this world. Even the Baby who only takes one breath and dies, will leave his effect. Some of us will leave what we have earned or the effect of what we have done or achieved.

True love is to do anything that the beloved wants - even if it is our life, we will give it for the beloved. Pure Love is not asking for anything - it is pure giving. Anything less than that is varying degrees of love, until it silently disappears!

This is why atheists hate religious people. A load of meaningless trite twaddle dressed up as some kind of profoundity.

A man says he "loves fish" while he's eating one - he obviously doesn't mean he has an affection for the animal - he means the taste of fish appeals strongly to him. And yes, a lot of acts of kindness are based on enlightened self-interest. No shit, Sherlock.

I'm an atheist and I think his perspective on love is spot on. As Kennedy almost said: Ask not what she can do for you, ask what you can do for her. Fish love is asking what she can do for you.

Totally agree. What a boring old fart this guy is. If he hadn't a religious title there's no way he would be getting any attention.
