“All things are drawn to earth and to one another. Even so, all souls are drawn to God and to one another. So that men might live all as one, and not each for himself, God revealed to them only that which is needful for all, and not that which is needful for each one separately. And, so that men might know what is needful to all and for all, He entered their souls, and in their souls manifested Himself as love.”

“God wanted us to be happy, and for that reason endowed us with a longing for happiness, but He wanted us to be happy in the aggregate and not as individuals, and for that reason He endowed us with a longing for love. For this reason, men will be happy only when they all love one another.”

“If you realize that love is the most important thing in life, you would not on meeting a man debate wherein he could be useful to you, but how and wherein you could be useful to him. Follow this rule, and you will always succeed better than if you took care of yourself alone. If we love those who attract us, who praise us, who do us good, then we love for ourselves, so as to better ourselves. Genuine love is when we love not for ourselves, seeking no benefit for ourselves, but for those whom we love, and when we love not because people are attractive or useful to us, but because we acknowledge in every being that spirit which dwells in us. Only when we love in this manner can we love those that hate us, our enemies, as Christ taught us to do.”

“Endeavor to love him whom you once did not love, whom you have condemned, or who may have done you an injury. And if you succeed in doing so, you will learn a new joy. Even as a bright light dispelling the darkness, the light of love will shine gloriously and joyously in your heart once you rid yourself of hatred. The best of men is he who loves all and does good to all without distinction, whether they be good or bad.”
