"Love seeketh not her own."
Observe: seeketh not even that which is her own. We are not summoned to give up our rights. Love strikes much deeper. It would have us not seek them at all. It is not hard to give up our rights. The difficult thing is to give up ourselves. The most obvious lesson in Christ's teaching is that there is no happiness in having and getting anything, but only in giving. He that would be happy, let him remember that there is but one way - "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
