“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” —John 13:34
“Miracles can happen and will happen when there is kindness, respect, and love. Why do any of us have to be so mean and unkind to others? Why can’t all of us reach out in friendship to everyone about us? Why is there so much bitterness and animosity? It is not a part of the gospel of Jesus Christ.” —Gordon B. Hinckley
