”To LOVE rightly is to LOVE what  is orderly and beautiful in an educated and disciplined way.”




A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.”

“Is the man of the house home?”, they asked.


“No”, she replied. “He’s out.”


“Then we cannot come in”, they replied.


In the evening when her husband came home, she told
him what had happened.


“Go tell them I am home and invite them in!”


The woman went out and invited the men in”


“We do not go into a House together,” they replied.


“Why is that?” she asked.


One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,”
he said pointing to one of his friends, and said
pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am
Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with

“Let us heed our daughter-in-law’s advice,” said the
husband to his wife.


“Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”


The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, “Which
one of you is Love? Please come in and be our


Love got up and started walking toward the house.
The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised,
the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited
Love, Why are you coming in?”


The old men replied together: “If you had invited
Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve
stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He
goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there
is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!”
