"The ultimate love is pure, unattached, unlimited love - when we dissolve into the Ocean of Divine Love"
"Love is the basis of all this creation. God has created this world, this Universe beacuse He loved, and He wants
to bestow this blessing on you, because he loves you."
Martin Luther King Jr.
"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college
degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul
generated by love."
"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the
bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will
have the final word. "
"Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."
"Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend."

"I can see that in the midst of death life persists, in the midst of untruth truth persists, in the midst of darkness
light persists. Hence I gather that God is Life, Truth, Light, He is Love. He is the supreme Good."
"It is heavy downpour of rain which drenches the soil to fullness; likewise only a profuse shower of love overcome hatred."
"Jesus lived and died in vain if he did not teach us to regulate the whole of life by the eternal Law of Love."
"Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment."
Here is an address by Gandhi talking about God and Love and self-realization:
"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives
us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall
have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace,
among ourselves, and with all nations."
"We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained
it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave
to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched,
as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." Lincoln's First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861.
"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe , a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves,
our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion
is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task
must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole
of nature in its beauty..."
"Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts."
