„Martin's soul grew very very glad.“

—  Leo Tolstoy Russian writer 1828 - 1910

"Where Love Is, God Is" (1885), also translated as "Where Love is, There God is Also" - (full text online)
Kontext: Martin's soul grew very very glad. He crossed himself put on his spectacles, and began reading the Gospel just where it had opened; and at the top of the page he read: I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in. And at the bottom of the page he read: Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of these my brethren even these least, ye did it unto me (Matt. xxv). And Martin understood that his dream had come true; and that the Saviour had really come to him that day, and he had welcomed him.
