Bishop Fulton J. Sheen-Quote

bishopsheen“Love is not only an affirmation; it is also a negation. A man who loves a woman and asks for her hand in marriage by that fact negates every other woman. A man who affirms the love of God negates the love of evil… The reason noble characters refuse to sin is not because they are afraid of hell or punishment; they negate evil because they would not hurt the one they love.”
—Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
