    “Love all God’s creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love the plants, love each separate thing. If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all; and when once thou perceive this, thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it: until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”

    Fydor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

    I have never read the book but this is a beautiful quote maybe I should look into it, it reads very much like the Bible. If I may let me share a quote from the Perks of Being a Wallflower, "We are infinite." God bless to everyone.

    I remember a friend recommending this book ages ago. But I was never interested enough to pick it up for a reading.
    But the quote you just posted is reason enough to pick it up.
    I will just have to find me a copy of the book first. Even an e-book will do.

    Your public library probably has one or more copies. It is a large book.

    Also you can download the book free from:

    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/search/?query=Brothers+karamazov

    or

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-brothers-karamazov/id395688080?mt=11

    There are also a number of editions available from Amazon for .99 cents.

    Frankly, I don't love every bird dropping that falls on my windshield, nor every virus that attacks my cells. I'll just have to settle for being a hater.

    OH, thank you for this link. I will check it out. Sadly, public libraries aren't a big thing in our country. Access to libraries are mostly limited to students and I'm no longer attending university.
