MATERIALS for DAY 1*

AUGUST 16th

I desire to make manifest among the friends in America a new light that they may become a new people, that a new foundation may be established and complete harmony be realized; for the foundation of Bahá’u’lláh is love. When you go to Green Acre, you must have infinite love for each other, each preferring the other before himself. The people must be so attracted to you that they will exclaim, “What happiness exists among you!” and will see in your faces the lights of the Kingdom; then in wonderment they will turn to you and seek the cause of your happiness.

— 1 July 1912, Talk at 309 West Seventy-eighth Street, New York (The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 218)
