Famous quotes with Complaisant

  • Genuine love loves all and sundry without conditions, it loves without expectations and it loves without complaints. In other words, genuine love is ever patient and tireless (it bears or tolerates all flaws, mistakes, short- comings, weaknesses, insults or disappointments) come what may. That is to say, true love is complaisant in nature (it is willing to please others). I mean, it is not self-seeking (it has the best interest of others at heart). Moreover, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances. Besides, it endures all (everything and everyone) without weakening. Also, true love does no wrong to anyone (it never hurts anybody). Conclusively, genuine love lasts perpetually and never for a short while. Oh! yes, that is just the qualities of true love. So, permit me to tell you this, anything less than the above qualities is not a genuine love at all. Anyway, do quote me right or rather you can say I said so. ~Emeasoba George
