Marion on God’s Love

Love loves without condition, simply because it loves; he thus loves without limit or restriction.  No refusal rebuffs or limits that which, in order to give itself, does not await the least welcome or require the least consideration.  Which means, moreover, that as interlocutor of love, man does not first have to pretend to arrange a ‘divine abode’ for it – supposing that this very pretension may be sustained – but purely and simply to accept it; to accept it or, more modestly, not to steal away from it. (Jean-Luc Marion, God Without Being, 47).
