"If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and I know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains but have not love, I am nothing. And if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing."
— Paul the Apostle (cira 5-67 CE) First letter to the Corinthians, chapter 13 (circa 53-57 CE) translation from the English Revised Version (1881)
