…and the greatest of these is love

"Those who abound in charity are truly great; and those are also great who are little in their own estimation and regard all worldly honors as nothing.  How wise are those who look upon worldly pleasures as dung in order to gain Christ.  They are truly learned who forsake their own will to follow the will of God."

(The Imitation of Christ, Book One, chapter three)
