"Love is the only mirror we must use to judge ourselves and others. And I will tell you this from my deepest heart: your life and happiness are worth the world to me -- worth more than my own life. If I, who am only a man, can love you so very much, when you look into the mirror of God's love, Rachel, you will see hope and joy and mercy. You will see how very much he cares for you and values you as His own dear daughter."
