The Quotable Soul "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend." - Martin Luther King, Jr. "I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world." - Mother Teresa "My heart and I lie small upon the earth like a grain of throbbing sand." - Zitakala-Sa "The true is Godlike: we do not see it itself; we guess at it through its manifestations." - J.
