Personal Quote / Scripture / Philosophy of Education

The Great Commandment calls us to love God and one another,
 
"And He said to him, " 'YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.'
This is the great and foremost commandment.
The second is like it, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'"
 
-Matthew 22:37-39, NASB
