Wikiquote quote of the day:
Act in such a way that your heart may be free from hatred. Let
not your heart be offended with anyone. If someone commits an error and
wrong toward you, you must instantly forgive him. Do not complain of
others. Refrain from reprimanding them, and if you wish to give
admonition or advice, let it be offered in such a way that it will not
burden the bearer. Turn all your thoughts toward bringing joy to hearts.
Beware! Beware! Lest ye offend any heart. Assist the world of humanity
as much as possible. Be the source of consolation to every sad one,
assist every weak one, be helpful to every indigent one, care for every
sick one, be the cause of glorification to every lowly one, and shelter
those who are overshadowed by fear.
