They do not give be back anything. My nature is to love the grand and the beautiful therefore I love them. Similarly, I love God. He is the source of all beauty, of all sublimity. He is the only One to be loved. My nature is to love Him. I do not pray for anything. I do not ask for anything. Let him place me wherever He likes. I love Him for love’s sake. Loving God without any expectation is true devotion and love.
