Divine Love Cannot Change
by Leo Tolstoy
(1828 – 1910)
Loving with human love,
one may pass from love to hatred;
but divine love cannot change.
Nothing, not even death, can shatter it.
It is the very nature of the soul…
Love is life.
All, all that I understand,
I understand only because I love.
All is bound up in love alone.
Love is God,
and dying means for me a particle of love,
to go back to the universal and eternal source of love.
