Comment on Article

"What shall I do to love my neighbor?"

"Stop hating yourself."

The disciple pondered those words long and seriously and came back to say, "But I love myself too much, for I am selfish and self-centered. How do I get rid of that?"

"Be friendly to yourself and your self will be contented and it will set you free to love your neighbor."
