Nothing is more seductive for a man than his freedom of conscience, but nothing is a greater cause of suffering.
Love a man even in his sin, for that is the semblance of Divine Love and is the highest love on earth.
Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to such a pass that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
