Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil and forgiving; but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope and patience never fail. Love is eternal.
