"Love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God,
and knoweth God." 1 John 4:7

"Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another,
if any man have a quarrel against any." Colossians 3:13

"Oh, might we all our lineage prove,
Give and forgive, do good and love;
By soft endearments, in kind strife,
Lightening the load of daily life."
J. Keble

"We may, if we choose, make the worst of one another.  Every one has his weak points.  Every one has his faults.  We may make the worst of these; we may fix our attention constantly upon these.  But we may also make the best of one anther.  We may forgive, even as we hope to be forgiven.  We may put ourselves in the place of others, and ask what we should wish to be done  to us, and thought of us, were we in their place.  By loving whatever is lovable in those around us, love will flow back from them to us, and life will become a pleasure instead of a pain.  Earth will become like heaven, and we shall become worthy followers of Him whose name is Love." A. P. Stanley
