What is love?

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

Where does that come from?

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ... a passage in that good old book the Bible.

Heard it hundreds of time and it still hits home. Heard it again this past Sunday at church.
