The cure for all the ills and wrongs, the cares, the sorrows, and the crimes of humanity, all lie in the one word ‘love’. It is the divine vitality that everywhere produces and restores life. –Lydia Maria Child
It’s hard to find anything to question to disagree on with this quote by Child. It goes back to second greatest commandment of Christianity, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” As I’ve said before, we could throw out the entire Bible, and just try to follow those to greatest commandments, and not only would we be occupied for our entire life, but the world would be a much better place for everyone.
How much easier it is to face any hardship when someone who loves us is there by our sides.
