Harriet Beecher Stowe on not taking the Bible’s command to love everyone, seriously

“Doesn’t the Bible say we must love everybody?”

“O, the Bible! To be sure, it says a great many things; but, then, nobody ever thinks of doing them.”

Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, quoted by Philip Yancey, What’s So Amazing About Grace, 160.
