The kernel of love

"How do you know I am capable of love?" she asked . . . "Steady affection perhaps."
"If by steady you mean faithful, there you have it; the kernel of love.  I imagine men long for God because of that unchanging faithfulness.  The rock under the quicksands.  The psalms are full of it."

Elizabeth Goudge, from The Scent of Water
