OWE NOTHING TO ANYONE ACCEPT TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, [love] is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth.It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.Love never fails.(1 Cor. 13:4-8)
YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.
Few people really know how to love.You must know how to be patient, to have a deep respect for the other’s countenance, and to help only in making his own features become more patent. 
[M. Timai in C. Lebreton, Born from the Gaze of God: The Tibhirine Journal of a Martyr Monk (1993-1996), 154-55]
