And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and will all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.—Mark 12:30-31
When it is within our power to give love, we should never withhold it. —Mary Ellen Edmunds
