Not Justice Alone (or Practice Love)

"The difficulty is that marriage, family life, friendship, neighborhood, and other personal connections do not depend exclusively or even primarily on justice - though, of course, they all must try for it.  They depend also on trust, patience, respect, mutual help, forgiveness - in other words, the practice of love, as opposed to the mere feeling of love."

-  Wendell Berry in Sex, Economy, Freedom, and Community
