O BROTHER man! fold to thy heart thy brother;
Where pity dwells, the peace of God is there;
To worship rightly is to love each other,
Each smile a hymn, each kindly deed a prayer.
John G. Whittier


IF you are to put off your kindness until death,— why not, in God’s name, put off also your enmity? and if you choose to write your lingering affections upon stones, wreak also your delayed anger upon clay. This would be just, and, in the last case, little as you think it, generous.
John Ruskin


LET not the sun in Capricorn go down ‘upon thy Wrath, but write thy Wrongs in Water. Draw the Curtain of Night upon Injuries, shut them up in the Tower of Oblivion, and let them be as tho’ they had not been. Forgive thine Enemies totally, and without any Reserve of hope, that however God will revenge them.
Sir Thomas Browne
