I have enjoyed a delightful time really taking to heart the huge word “love” and trying to assimilate its wonderful qualities. I would like to think that this short four-letter word has made a difference in my life and that others can see and experience it in our day-to-day contact. I have learned several things from Professor Henry Drummond, who wrote the little gem “The Greatest Thing in the World,” where he avidly declares that love is indeed that. The edition I have is copyrighted in 1890, by James Pott and Co.
