Charity manifests goodness in overflowing generosity

Reading from Celsius Spicq, Agape in the New Testament:

Charity is neither passion nor ordinary liking. It is a pure and spiritual desire for the good, rooted deep in the heart. The charitable man loves those who are spiteful and unresponsive. Spiritual love is its own motive. Just as light by nature illuminates, so also fire warms, and charity manifests goodness in overflowing generosity.
