What then is the conclusion of the matter? Love yourself, if that means rational and healthy self-interest. You are commanded to do that. That is the length of life. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. You are commanded to do that. That is the breadth of life. But never forget that there is a first and even greater commandment. “Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul; and with all thy mind.” This is the height of life. Only by a painstaking development of all three of these dimensions can you expect to live a complete life.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
