They will not condemn those who are unlike themselves;
they will know and feel that individuality brings differences
and uniformity means death.
They will wish each human being to be as much a living thing

which the harsh usage of a ruthless world would destroy.
In one word, all their dealings with others will be inspired
by a deep impulse of reverence.
