The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.
My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.Bible (Old Testament)
Individuals of the earlier species had suffered from an almost insurmountable spiritual isolation from one another. Not even lovers, and scarcely even the geniuses with special insight into personality, ever had anything like accurate vision of one another. [T]he most precious gift that a lover could bring to the beloved was not virginity but sexual experience. The union, it was felt, was the more pregnant the more each party could contribute from previous sexual and spiritual intimacy with others.Olaf Stapledon
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting uponhim: And loavoicefromheaven, saying,This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.Bible (NewTestament)
You must not forget the suspenders,Best beloved.
Where the abyss of his wisdom is, he will teach you what he is, and with what wondrous sweetness the loved one and the beloved dwell one in the other, and how they penetrate each other in such a way that neither of the two distinguishes himself from the other. But they abide in one another in fruition, mouth in mouth, heart in heart, body in body, and soul in soul, while one sweet divine nature flows through them both and being in each other they are both one and they remain completely one -- yes, and remain so forever.
All things are literally better, lovelier, more beloved for the imperfections which have been divinelyappointed.john ruskin
I shall christen this style the Mandarin, since it is beloved by literary pundits, by those who would make the written word as unlike as possible to the spoken one. It is the style of all those writers whose tendency is to make their language convey more than they mean or more than they feel, it is the style of most artists and all humbugs.cyril connolly
Each man in his life honors, and imitates as well as he can, that god to whose choir he belonged, while he is uncorrupted in his first incarnation here; and in the fashion he has thus learned, he bears himself to his beloved as well as to the rest. So, then, each chooses from among the beautiful a love conforming to his kind, and then, as if his chosen were his god, he sets him up and robes him for worship.mary renault
God's beloved Son, leaving the echoes of His cries upon the mountains and the traces of His weary feet upon the streets, shedding His tears over the tombs and His blood upon Golgotha, associating His life with our homes, and His corpse with our sepulchres, shows us how we, too, may be sons in the humblest vale of life, and sure of sympathy in heaven amid the deepest wrongs and sorrows of earth.edward thomson
Oh, the gallant fisher's life!It is the best of any;'T is full of pleasure, void of strife,And 't is beloved by many.Izaak Walton

I call "crystallization" that action of the mind that discovers fresh perfections in its beloved at every turn of events.stendhal
If indeed you are going to take away Islam from the face of the earth (amen), in particular from our beloved Indonesia (amen), we appeal, o Allah , that it is much better for us who have suffered so much to be taken away...
If the campaign is in summer the general must show himself greedy for his share of the sun and the heat, and in winter for the cold and the frost, and in all labours for toil and fatigue. This will help to make him beloved of his followers.
God's hearing of our prayers does not depend upon sanctifi- cation, but upon Christ's intercession; not upon what we are in ourselves, but what we are in the Lord Jesus; both our persons and our prayers are accepted in the beloved.
I shall chide you no more. You and I shall smile together, so long as our two forms appear different in the maya- dream of God . Finally we shall merge as one in the Cosmic beloved; our smiles shall be His smile, our unified song of joy vibrating throughout eternity to be broadcast to God -tuned souls .
