The Fruits

The fruits of the tree of man have ever been and are goodly deeds and a praiseworthy character.
Withhold not these fruits from the heedless.

If they be accepted, your end is attained, and the purpose of life achieved.

If not, leave them in their pastime of vain disputes.

Strive, O people of God,
that haply the hearts of the diverse kindreds of the earth may,
through the waters of your forbearance and loving-kindness,
be cleansed and sanctified from animosity and hatred…

-Bahá’u’lláh Epistle to the Son of the Wolf
