"May my soul bloom in love for all creation." — Rudolf Steiner
Rudolf Steiner: "Empathy is awakened in the right manner if we take an interest in a being; and if, as anthroposophists, we set ourselves the task of extending our interests more and more and of widening our mental horizon. This will promote the universal brotherhood and sisterhood of mankind. Progress is not gained by the mere preaching of universal love, but by the extension of our interests further and further, so that we interest ourselves more and more in souls with widely different characters, racial and national particularities, with widely different temperaments, and holding widely differing religious and philosophical views, and then approach them with understanding. Right interest, right understanding, calls forth from the soul the right moral actions."
