Love is always patient;love is always kind;love is never envious or arrogant with pride. Nor is she conceited,and she is never rude she never thinks just of herselfor ever get annoyed.She never is resentful;is never glad with sin, but always glad to side with truth,whene'er the truth should win.[b]
She bears up under everything, believes the best in all, there is no limit to her hope,and she will never fall.Love never fails.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways.Now we see only an indistinct image in a mirror, but then we will be face to face. Now what I know is incomplete, but then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. Right now three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.
