Love is Life
Scientists tell us that without the presence of the cohesive force among the atoms that comprise this globe of ours, it would crumble to pieces and we would cease to exist and even as there is cohesive force in blind matter, so must there be in all things animate begins in love. We have to learn to use that for among all that lives, and in the use of it consists our knowledge of god. Where there is love there is life, hatred leads to destruction. Life is persists in the middle of destruction. Only under that law would a well-ordered society be intelligible and life worth living.
The sum-total of the energy of mankind is not to bring us down but to lift us up, and that is the result of the definite, if unconscious working of the law of low. The fact that mankind persists shows that the cohesive force is greater than the disruptive force, centripetal force greater than centrifugal. If love be not the law of our bring, there is no escape from a periodical recurrence of war, each succeeding one outdoing the preceding in ferocity.
