Loving the Truth

"Those who begin by loving Christianity more than truth, proceed to love their sect more than Christianity, and end by loving themselves most of all"

-Samuel Taylor Coleridge


"Man must be a lover of the light no matter from what day-spring it may appear...He must be a seeker of the truth no matter from what source it come. Attachment to the lantern is not loving the light...If we are lovers of the light we adore it in whatever lamp it may become manifest but if we love the lamp itself and the light is transferred to another lamp we will neither accept nor sanction it...We must not be fettered [...]"

-Abdu'l-Baha
