From Mr. Bowyer Nichols’ quotation in Words and Days

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
.. MY 1 neighbour, or my servant, or my child, has done me an injury, and it is just that he should suffer an injury in return. Such is the doctrine which Jesus Christ summoned his whole resources of persuasion to oppose. ‘Love your enemy; bless those that curse you’: such, he says, is the practice of God, and such must ye imitate if ye would be the children of God.  1
Note 1. Shelley. Copied from Mr. Bowyer Nichols’ quotation in ‘Words and Days’, 1895, for Xmas Day. [back]
