    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
    Bible: New Testament, Ephesians 4:1-3.
