Love and empathy, manifested through our lives, are more precious and rare than diamonds and gold.
Sometimes, we must mine deeply for them. But if we dig far enough, we will find them, waiting to be discovered and realized and shared.
Love and empathy, forces more powerful than any other in the universe.
No force can stop or destroy love and empathy.
Even death, itself, cannot obliterate love and empathy: when a person dies, the love and empathy felt and realized and shared by that person lives on in the lives of those who were gifted those most precious of all riches.
And so on, and so on, and so on, and it never ends. . .
