Love and Do What You Will …

Therefore once for all this short command is given to you:
“Love and do what you will.”
If you keep silent, keep silent by love:
if you speak, speak by love;
if you correct, correct by love;
if you pardon, pardon by love;
let love be rooted in you,
and from the root nothing but good can grow.
— St. Augustine of Hippo from “In Epistulam Ioannis ad Parthos”
