“All the prophets were sent, all the books were revealed, that the law of love might be promoted. Let us have love and more love, a love that melts all opposition, that sweeps away all barriers, that conquers all foes, a love that aboundeth in charity, large-heartedness, tolerance, and noble striving, a love that triumphs over all obstacle, a boundless, an irresistible, sweeping love! Ah me! Each one must be a sign of love, a center of love, a sun of love, a star of love, a palace of love, a mountain of love, a world of love, a universe of love! Hast thou love? Then thy power is irresistible.”
(Compilations, Baha'i Scriptures, p. 454)
“There is nothing greater or more blessed than the Love of God! It gives healing to the sick, balm to the wounded, joy and consolation to the whole world, and through it alone can man attain Life Everlasting.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, U.K. Bahá’í Publishing Trust, 1972, p. 82.
“Love the creatures for the sake of God and not for themselves. You will never become angry or impatient if you love them for the sake of God. Humanity is not perfect. There are imperfections in every human being, and you will always become unhappy if you look toward the people themselves. But if you look toward God, you will love them and be kind to them, for the world of God is the world of perfection and complete mercy.”
“O Son of Man! For everything there is a sign. The sign of love is fortitude under My decree and patience under My trials.”
“In the world of existence there is no more powerful magnet than the magnet of love.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in London, U.K. Bahá’í Publishing Trust, 1982, p. 79.
