_A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another_.–JOHN xiii. 34.
_And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love, one toward another, and toward all men_.–I THESS. iii. 12.

Let love through all my conduct shine, An image fair, though faint, of Thine; Thus let me His disciple prove, Who came to manifest Thy love.
Simon Browne.
We should arrive at a fulness of love extending to the whole creation, a desire to impart, to pour out in full and copious streams the love and goodness we bear to all around us.
J. P. GREAVES.
Goodness and love mould the form into their own image, and cause the joy and beauty of love to shine forth from every part of the face. When this form of love is seen, it appears ineffably beautiful, and affects with delight the inmost life of the soul.
E. SWEDENBORG.
The soul within had so often lighted up her countenance with its own full happiness and joy, that something of a permanent radiance remained upon it.
SARAH W. STEPHEN.
