Well it is that immensity that gave it endless definition one can think of.

Yeah, like size of shoes or bra or similar hugely important issues... Immensity is a matter in love as well.

The more one judges, the less one loves.

Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact.

Behind every great fortune there is a crime.

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.

Love may be or it may not, but where it is, it ought to reveal itself in its immensity.

The smallest flower is a thought, a life answering to some feature of the Great Whole, of whom they have a persistent intuition.

There is no such thing as a great talent without great will power.

Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.

The motto of chivalry is also the motto of wisdom; to serve all, but love only one.

Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.

The context from : "Letters of Two Brides"

XV - Louise de Chaulieu to Mm de L'estorade March

P. S.—You must admit, dear, that great lords know how to love! See the spring of the African lion! What restrained fire! What loyalty! What sincerity! How high a soul in low estate! I felt quite small and dazed as I said to myself, "What shall I do?"
It is the mark of a great man that he puts to flight all ordinary calculations. He is at once sublime and touching, childlike and of the race of giants. In a single letter Henarez has outstripped volumes from Lovelace or Saint-Preux. Here is true love, no beating about the bush. Love may be or it may not, but where it is, it ought to reveal itself in its immensity.
Here am I, shorn of all my little arts! To refuse or accept! That is the alternative boldly presented me, without the ghost of an opening for a middle course. No fencing allowed! This is no longer Paris; we are in the heart of Spain or the far East. It is the voice of Abencerrage, and it is the scimitar, the horse, and the head of Abencerrage which he offers, prostrate before a Catholic Eve! Shall I accept this last descendant of the Moors? Read again and again his Hispano-Saracenic letter, Renee dear, and you will see how love makes a clean sweep of all the Judaic bargains of your philosophy.

I suppose the writer meant that love that already exists shouldn't just be in progress but should develop, increase and strengthen in terms of unconditionality and total mercifulness.

Thank you dear Eugie for your explanation. It makes sense and I like your explanation much better and your thoughtful manner! Have a nice day!
