Alphonse de Lamartine - Angelic Love

To love for the sake of being loved is human, but to love for the sake of loving is angelic.
 ~Alphonse de Lamartine

Reminds me of lines from the Poems for my Soul:

From Giving Into Love:

The child of love plays
in the crib of giving.
Give truly in Love
Cradle truth in living.

From the poem Drive the fall to love:

New England roads, fall season,
there's no time, no drive above.
Than loving with no reason
there's no better way to love.
