6 Jakob Bohme Quotes about Love

” Men should friendly confer together, and offer one another their gifts and knowledge in love, and try things one with another, and hold that which is best, and not so stand in their own opinion as if they could not err. “


” If Love dwelt not in Trouble, it could have nothing to love. But its substance which it loves, namely the poor soul, being in trouble and pain, it hath thence cause to love this its own substance and to deliver it from pain, that so itself may by it be again beloved. “


” The virtue of Love is nothing and all, or that Nothing visible out of which All Things proceed. Its power is through All Things, its height is as high as God, its greatness is as great as God. “


” Love is higher than the Highest. Love is greater than the Greatest. Yea, it is in a certain sense greater than God, while yet, in the highest sense of all, God is Love, and Love is God. Love being the highest principle is the virtue of all virtues, from whence they flow forth. “


” Adam was the image of God, he was man and woman, and yet neither of them before his Eve, but a masculine virgin in peculiar love, full of chastity and purity. “
