There are moral principles one differing from the other, which are like separate drops coming out of the fountain.

But when we look at the stream, we find there is but one stream.

There are many moral principles, taught to mankind by various teachers, by many traditions, just as many drops fall from one fountain; but there is one stream that is at the source of all, and that is love.

It is love that gives birth to hope, patience, endurance, forgiveness, tolerance, and to all moral principles. All deeds of kindness and beneficence take root in the soil of the loving heart. Generosity, charity, adaptability, an accommodating nature, even renunciation, are the offspring of love alone.
