Love [people] even in [their] sin,
for that is the semblance of Divine Love
and is the highest love on earth.
Love all God’s creation,
the whole and every grain of sand in it.
Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light.
Love the animals, love the plants, love everything.
If you love everything,
you will perceive the divine mystery in things.
Once you have perceived it,
you will begin to comprehend it better every day.
And you will come at last to love the whole world
with an all-embracing love.
—Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
