Saint Augustine Love Quotes and Sayings

1. Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.

2. He that is jealous is not in love.

3. What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.

4. Love, and do what you like.
