Nor can that endure which has not

its foundations upon love. For love alone diminishes not,

About these ads

but shines with its own light; Makes an end of discord,

softens the fires of hate, Restores peace in the world,

brings together the sundered, Redresses wrong,

aids all and injures none; And who so invokes its aid

will find peace and safety, And have no fear of future ill.

From the Act of Horoldo (A.D. 1413), inspired by Queen Jadwiga of Polandm
