A Few Quotes from the Writings on Virtues

 

"Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues. Without truthfulness progress and success, in all the worlds of God, are impossible for any soul."

"Beautify your tongues, O people, with truthfulness, and adorn your souls with the ornament of honesty."

"A kindly tongue is the lodestone of the hearts of men. It is the bread of the spirit, it clotheth the words with meaning. It is the fountain of the light of wisdom and understanding..."

"Do not be content with showing friendship in words alone; let your heart burn with loving-kindness for all who may cross your path."

"Man is the supreme Talisman. Lack of a proper education hath, however, deprived him of that which he doth inherently possess."

"O SON OF SPIRIT! The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes."
