Okay, I've paraphrased some of my favorate verses into modern language. * Whomever you would consider to be the lowest among you (people of differing faith or orientation, perhaps?), they may be the greatest. Treat them as such. * Don't love only people who are and believe just like you. Even the lowlifes can do that. Love those you would be tempted to hate. * No matter how different someone is or what they have done, forgive them. This is the ultimate strength. * Don't worry about the beliefs or actions of other people. You're so screwed up, you need to just worry about your own self. * If you want to point your finger at someone's actions that's fine. Just make sure you have never done anything wrong in your life and it's all good. So it's not like your "sins" are of better quality than someone else's. * Any time you refuse to help someone you could have helped, you've missed a chance to make your life better, richer and more fulfilling. You've screwed up. * Self-righteous people are <okay fine, edited> Jerks! Vipers! (My apologies to those who were offended). * Go for your goals with everything you have! * But keep in mind, if you achieve all your goals and have everything, but you're not a loving person, you've got nothing. How about yours?
