Love finds truth

 

For love must not only seek the truth in the lives of those around us; it must find it there.

First love the truth

 

It is clear, then, that to love others well we must first love the truth.

The truth we must love in loving our brothers is the concrete destiny and sanctity that are willed for them by the love of God.

The truth I must love in my brother is God Himself, living in him. I must seek the love of the Spirit of God breathing in him.

— Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
