19 “Gentleness, tenderness, caring deeply – these are the ways, however humble, by which the very best in a person’s life can shine forth.”

20 “If regarded solely by the mind, the human race exhibits a great diversity; seen by intuitive perception and implicit insight, these differences are found to be largely limited to the surface.
