"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"
Jesus replied:
"'Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind.'

All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

but a kind of instinct or inspiration,
such as you find in seers and prophets
who deliver all their sublime messages
without knowing in the least what they mean.

They knew that it was a mortal sin to marry
someone of a different skin color.

To never look away. And never, never, to forget.

Having seen the devastation of war first hand,
Eisenhower came both to despise war
and to see that "war settles nothing."
