If we do not understand our fellow creatures we shall never love them.  And it is equally true, that if we do not love them we shall never understand them.  Want of charity, want of sympathy, want of good feeling and fellow-feeling–what does it, what can it breed but endless mistakes and ignorances, both of men’s characters and men’s circumstances.  (Charles Kingsley, DAILY THOUGHTS)
