Joseph Smith Quotes
That friendship which intelligent beings would accept as sincere must arise from love, and that love grows out of virtue, which is as much a part of religion as light is a part of Jehovah.
Wise men ought to have understanding enough to conquer men with kindness.

If we would secure and cultivate the love of others, we must love others, even our enemies as well as friends. . . . [People] ask, "Why is it this babbler gains so many followers, and retains them?" I answer, It is because I possess the principle of love. All I can offer the world is a good heart and a good hand.
