Favorite Agape Quotes

1. "I to je zapravo sustina proslavljanja Dana sv. Valentina:san o ljubavi. Zivot bi zaista bio gorak kada se san nikada ne bi ostvario ili kada nasa najvaznija zivotna iskustva ljubavi - storge, pragma, ludus, agape - ne bi bila dovoljno trajna i cvsta da nas spasu kad nas zahvati oluja erosa i manije - donoseci nam blazenstvo i ostavljajuci pustos za sobom."
Author: A.C. Grayling
2. "When exactly did this all change, and what were the social and theological factors that led to the change? The answer seems to be in the second century and: (1) because of the consolidation of ecclesial power in the hands of monarchial bishops and others; (2) in response to the rise of heretical movements such as the Gnostics; (3) in regard to the social context of the Lord's Supper, namely, the agape, or thanksgiving, meal, due to the rise to prominence of asceticism in the church; and (4) because the increasingly Gentile majority in the church was to change how second-century Christian thinkers would reflect on the meal. Thus, issues of power and purity and even ethnicity were to change the views of the Lord's Supper and the way it would be practiced."
Author: Ben Witherington III
3. "Agape is an obedient response of availability to God, not a feeling. But, although it is not a feeling, its ultimate end is a feeling."
Author: Beth Moore
4. "The Greeks were smarter than us, and they had different words for different kinds of love. There's storge, which is family love. That's not us. There's eros, which is sexual love. There's philia, which is brotherly love. And then there's the highest form. Agape." He pronounced it 'aga-pay'. "Thats transcendental love, like when you place the other person above yourself."
Author: Bill Konigsberg
5. "In the English language, we have one word for love, which translates into our sexual drive. The ancient Greeks had more than one word for it, including the word agape. It means to compromise or sacrifice, and it's a kind of love I've seen in all couples who have gotten married and stayed married. It is my opinion that this kind of love determines the entire success of your married life, and to an extent, it's a good part of your financial life too. Reaching a financial goal always takes a little bit of sacrifice, and would be impossible to do on your own. Once you and your spouse realize that mutual sacrifice is a healthy part of your marriage, you are well on your way to achieving harmony in planning for your finances together."
Author: Celso Cukierkorn
6. "Romance is like a white horse, strong,beautiful, and large. When agape love and romance merge that horse get's it's wings and becomes a Pegasus. Both horse and Pegasus can go far but only the Pegasus is immortal,can soar beyond the stars thus true love is born."
Author: Cianna
7. "I know my mouth is agape and my eyes are wide, but I'm relieved that hope isn't a tangible thing, because everyone around me would see mine crumbling."
Author: Colleen Hoover
8. "God's love, and hence the love with which we come to love God, is eros and agape at once: a desire for the other that delights in the distance of otherness."
Author: David Bentley Hart
9. "Christ is a persuasion, a form evoking desire, and the whole force of the gospel depends upon the assumption that this persuasion is also peace: that the desire awakened by the shape of Christ and his church is one truly reborn as agape, rather than merely the way in which a lesser force succumbs to a greater, as an episode in the endless epic of power. (3)"
Author: David Bentley Hart
10. "Very Nice to meet you all"They all floated in silence as if waiting on something when it dawned on me that they were waiting for me to get in. I pulled off my shirt and tossed it with my towel. When I turned around their mouths were agape."What?""N-nothing" Finley said, her eyes wide."
Author: Fisher Amelie
11. "She started to turn around, but I tugged her hand just enough for me to see her profile as she closed her eyes. She felt it as just like I did. There was an undeniable connection between us. I pulled her into my arms and with one hand moved the stray strands of her caramel hair away from her soft skin. I saw her mouth was slightly agape, and I pulled her face towards mine. I was mere centimeters from her lips, the warmth of her breath sliding against my own."You should go Mylie or you might regret staying," I said softly. "I don't want to go," she said anxiously. Damn."
Author: H.P. Landry
12. "I'd like to ask you more about your ears if I may," I said."You want to ask whether or not my ears possess some special power?" I nodded. "See what I mean?" She said. She'd become so beautiful, it defied understanding. Never had I feasted my eyes on such beauty. It transcended all concepts within the boundaries of my awareness. She was at one with her ears, gliding down the oblique face of time like a protean beam of light. "You are extraordinary." I said after catching my breath. "I know." she said. "These are my ears in their unblocked state."Several of the other customers were now turned our way, staring agape at her. The waiter who came over with more coffee couldn't pour properly. Not a soul uttered a word, only the reels on the tape deck kept slowly spinning. She retrieved a clove cigarette from her purse and put it to her lips. I hurriedly offered her a light with my lighter. "I want to sleep with you," She said. So we slept together."
Author: Haruki Murakami
13. "What is this love that endures decades, passes on sleep, and resists death to give one kiss? Call it agape love, a love that bears a semblance of God's."
Author: Max Lucado
14. "I could feel the blood draining from my face again as I saw him standing there. He was a hallucination. I had gone insane! "That's very thoughtful of you," the nurse responded to David's comment."You see him too?" I sat agape."
Author: Nely Cab
15. "Friendship evangelism' is the freedom to Agape others without an agenda (Young)."~R. Alan Woods [2013]"
Author: R. Alan Woods
16. "He gently pried my hand off his arm. "I have to," he said softly. He went to turn away, and then stopped, like maybe he was reconsidering. But instead of agreeing to come back to the Itineris with me, he reached out, cupped my face, and brought his lips to mine.I was so shocked that I literally froze in place, one hand hovering in the air next to Cal's shoulder. The kiss was brief--just a little too long to be considered chaste--but when he pulled away, all I could do was stare at him, my mouth slightly agape. He ran his thumb over my lower lip, sending a tiny flurry of sparks through me. "Goodbye, Sophie."
Author: Rachel Hawkins
17. "I am not a believer in love at first sight. For love, in its truest form, is not the thingof starry-eyed or star-crossed lovers, it is far more organic, requiring nurturing and timeto fully bloom, and, as such, seen best not in its callow youth but in its wrinkled maturity.Like all living things, love, too, struggles against hardship, and in the process shedsits fatuous skin to expose one composed of more than just a storm of emotion–one of loyaltyand divine friendship. Agape. And though it may be temporarily blinded by adversity,it never gives in or up, holding tight to lofty ideals that transcend this earth andtime–while its counterfeit simply concludes it was mistaken and quickly runs off tofind the next real thing."
Author: Richard Paul Evans
18. "Agape doesn't love somebody because they're worthy.Agape makes them worthy by the strength and power of its love.Agape doesn't love somebody because they're beautiful.Agape loves in such a way that it makes them beautiful."
Author: Rob Bell
19. "Sometimes ..." Miss Charming's voice dropped lower, and she looked Charlotte in the eye. "Sometimes my boobs kill." Charlotte's eyes wideened, her mouth agape. It wasn't until Miss Charming followed her shocking statement by rubbing her chest in discomfort that Charlotte realized " my boobs kill" meant "my boobs ache" rather than " my boobs fatally maim people." It was a natural mistake to make. After all they really were large enough to suffocate a grown man."
Author: Shannon Hale
20. "The concept that really gets the goat of the gay-hater, the idea that really spins their melon and sickens their stomachs is that most terrible and terrifying of all human notions, love.That one can love another of the same gender, that is what the homophobe really cannot stand. Love in all eight tones and all five semitones of the world's full octave.Love as Agape, Eros and Philos; love as infatuation, obsession and lust; love as torture, euphoria, ecstasy and oblivion (this is beginning to read like a Calvin Klein perfume catalogue); love as need, passion and desire."
Author: Stephen Fry
21. "There must be a stronger foundation than mere friendship or sexual attraction. Unconditional love, agape love, will not be swayed by time or circumstances."
Author: Stephen Kendrick
22. "And who are you?" cried one agape, Shuddering in the gloaming light. "I know not" said the second Shape, "I only died last night."
Author: Thomas Bailey Aldrich
23. "Daniel squeezes my shoulder and gently kisses my cheek, then my lips. "You're wondering how I could agitate you to no end one night, and the next you find me attractive?" I nod slowly. "You didn't, like... do something, did you?" Solemnly, he nods. "I'm afraid I did, fledge." He straightens up, trying to look dignified despite his nudity. "I removed my clothing in front of you, causing you to stare agape at my body and more than likely realize that you desire a man's touch." He kneels before me, taking my hand to touch his forehead. "Forgive me, please, for the horrific transgression of arousing your loins from their deep slumber, good sir."
Author: Vaughn R. Demont
24. "Why, from the very windows, even in the dusk, you see a swelling run through the street, an aspiration, as with arms outstretched, eyes desiring, mouths agape. And then we peaceably subside. For if the exaltation lasted we should be blown like foam into the air. The stars would shine through us. We should go down the gale in salt drops- as sometimes happens. For the impetuous spirits will have none of this cradling. Never any swaying or aimlessly lolling for them. Never any making believe, or lying cosily, or genially supposing that one is much like another, fire warm, wine pleasant, extravagance a sin."
Author: Virginia Woolf
