We have vastly more kindness than is ever spoken. Maugre all the selfishness, the whole human family is bathed with an element of love like a fine ether. How many persons I meet in houses whom I scarcely speak to, who yet honor me & I them. How many I see in the street or sit with in the Church whom I warmly rejoice to be with. The heart knoweth.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
